My brush dipped into only four colors on Monday night at The Grisly Pear.
Using only Winsor Orange, Cadmium Yellow Pale, Alizaring Crimson and French Ultramarine Blue I ended up with a pile of paintings, most of which fell into the color scheme Analogous with One Complement. The transitions from alizarin to Ultramarine are a delightful passage of purple variations. The brilliant yellow-orange is toned with a bit of crimson by the bleed of the ink I used. I find myself using Noodler’s Black Swan in English Rose for the initial drawing done with a dip pen. The bleed of the ink works well with my palette.
