Daily Art #3057

Lots of color investigation and theory today!

I spent a lot of time this morning doing some research on color systems. And I think I’ve decided to take a deep dive into learning color through Paul foxton’s work on his site learning to see. The problem is is that I need to buy the month so color book and they have all kinds of different additions so a lot of my research was trying to figure out which edition I should buy. And the big one is super costly, over $1,000.

Considering most of my time this morning was done with research I’m going to figure out something to do besides just my warm-up that is dealing with color and the paints that I have.

I picked a small area of the paper cross painting where the colors are the most light and the most intense. So where they have the highest value and the highest chroma. Then I began to use Photoshop to select those colors and figure out a relative hue and saturation and then I created my own little chart for that small area. Then I painted it in the center of my color wheel which I’m probably going to redo.

Next I’ll compare what I painted to the actual photo that I’m dealing with and see how close I got. I don’t think I can reproduce it exactly because I’m dealing with a backlit monitor versus actual pigment so they both react a bit differently.

I’m really happy with this comparison! I didn’t think I would be this close.
