Time for another blog post.
Yesterday I made a few colour studies with a very limited palette:
plus Titanium White, as always

This was not an easy palette to work with, but in the end I loved it.
Below are a few progression photos:
I begin with orange, blue and white
More blue and a bit of the red
All the colours in concert

In case you are curious to know more about pigments, here is a very good database:
It is actually simpler than it appears at first glance, and is a great resource if you're into this sort of knowledge.
I've had a lousy head cold with very low energy for about a week.
Yesterday I slept part of the day, but in the evening was feeling well enough to get into the studio, and wound up working into the wee hours. Now making this blog post and looking forward to being back to 100% soon, so I can finally resume work on some larger things for one of my galleries.
Thank you as always for reading, and I hope you have a lovely day - free of lousy head colds! haha
