Palette for Arches

Palette for Arches

No new painting updates today – been a busy week at work, so no play time in the studio. But in the spirit of blogging discipline I wanted to post.

To the untrained eye, this post could look like, well… vomit. But it’s actually the painful reality of painting variations of sand hues. Gotta love that ochre and gray mashup!

The base mix for the arch yellow/sand was ochre, white, a little raw umber, and a spec of cad yellow. The grey is a standard mash of equal parts ultramarine blue and burnt sienna. To move the range of yellow ochre around, I experimented with varying values of the gray mixture. Fun stuff!
