Have you ever wondered how a painting is born? The best way to describe the process is by showing a live example. So I’ve included some pictures of different stages of the process of my latest work to show how I create a new oil painting.
If I want the painting to have a late afternoon atmosphere I will choose colors that reflect that warmth. Or a cool winter morning painting will demand a cooler palette. This takes thought of which colors work together to create atmosphere.
The three “primary” colors are so named because they cannot be created by mixing any other color. These three primary colors can then be mixed to create any other color in various proportions, but these three are the foundation of all colors used.
