Oof. Look at those colors.
I was supposed to make the highlights warmer and the shadows cooler. I was instructed to mix colors on the palette before putting any paint on the canvas. It made a big difference.
I’ve been thinking about color mixing all week. Bought the Pantone app for the iPhone. Very cool.
And I bought this book, which I find fascinating for some reason. The section about mixing complementary colors to achieve more realistic and life-like gray tones was very helpful.
My yellow was too tinted, though. Tinted? Is that the right word? The yellow wasn’t intense enough because I added too much white. Oh well.
