This is Lesson 4 from Texture Town. Creating 3 colour palettes from a limited colour range.
The first is the 3 5x5" panels together:
This is the red-gold colourway: (happy happy)
The blue-gray colourway::(
The brown-gray colourway::happy happy:
The palette is limited to the following colours, (Golden Fluid Acrylics) + Acrylic Glazing Liquid (AGL):
Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide
Transparent Red Iron Oxide
Van Dyke Brown
The panels were first covered in joint compound and textured, then a piece of sheet music (Mendelssohn's Elijah), then in Heavy Gel Matte. Once it was dry, it was painted.
I really like the brown and red colourways, but the blue just isn't working for me - suggestions?
I enjoyed the high/lowlighting part of the process best. I'm going to repeat the exercise again, but with different imagery.
Not sure if I'll get any more painting done today - we'll see.
