Painted using only two colors Cobalt Blue and Raw Sienna
This painting was done from a photo and sketch I made at Face Rock State Park at Bandon Beach, Oregon this summer. My two colors were Graham Brand Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna.
Ultimarine Blue and Gamboge Yellow only
two colours - Quin Burnt Orange and Cobalt Blue
Searching for an idea for the Summer Challenge, I received a photo from Ian Cooke for his class, missed due to my vacation. The color of the mushrooms suggested Quinacridone Gold, which can vary from bright golden yellow to dark brown, depending on the density. It was then combined with the second color, Ultramarine Blue, to create the greens in the picture and enhance shadows.
Love peonies…..love pink!
The original photo of this scene displayed only three colors - blue, yellow, and green. Perfect, I thought! I used ultramarine blue and cadmium yellow light for my two colors and from these set out to make a series of different shades of greens. I was surprised how many greens I could formulate for the picture.
This is a watercolor painting using wet on wet technique.
Thought this would lend itself to a two color approach. Used Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue.
