Playing The Color Scheme Game with me …
Last week I posted the first of the weekly line drawings for which one of you chose the color scheme for me to use when I painted it the next day. When the Family Treasures Series is completed, I will start another series of morning drawings and we will be able to continue playing the game together on a weekly basis. All you have to do is choose two numbers. The first will indicate the color scheme according to the list below and the second will indicate one of the colors I must use in the color scheme. It’s easy. Click the “Contact Me” link at the bottom of the post and send me a message with the two numbers you have chosen. I will go with the choices of the first person who replies. You may play every week if you like, even if you have already been the first to reply. Thanks for participating!
Next Day … Laura chose Color Scheme No. 4 (Extended Analogous) and Hue No. 7 (Violet)
I photographed the five possible palettes using Color Scheme No. 4 and Hue No. 7
In addition to the five hues in the extended palette, I am also permitted to mix neutrals using the five hues. The hues are to be saturated (undiluted) color to learn more about the intrinsic value (white to black) of each hue, including the neutrals.
I chose the option third option (top row on the right) Red, Red-Violet, Violet, Blue-Violet, Blue).
To learn why I chose that option click here to read the next post.
Thanks for participating in the game, Laura!
