Today I’ve been doing a bit of experimentation in the studio. I’ve got a new palette, a grey toned glass one from New Wave Art. It’s good for judging the relative values of colour mixes, whether they’re lighter or darker than the neutral tone of the palette, or cooler or warmer.
Once I’d mixed up all these delicious greys and made a few colour charts to record the mixes, it seemed a shame to waste all that paint, so did a quick still life of the daffodils in the kitchen (now a week old and looking a little sorry for themselves).
It’s always lovely how the neutral tones of the various greys make the colours sing out even more vibrantly.
