    You can get an amazing range of colors with just these two colors. The tree trunks and the horse in the Trail Ride painting I posted were also done with these two colors.  I’ve seen/heard Patrick mix these two colors in his video tutorials as well. Pretty versatile palette staples.

    Simply stunning, Louise. So lifelike. I don’t believe you painted that shirt, I think it’s real!

    Thanks everyone. Your comments are so appreciated. A two color study is so useful in learning values. That is what I got the most out of this painting. There are several good books out there about color and they are fascinating. There are so many colors and they all have different properties and work differently on paper and mixed with other colors. Of course, nothing beats experience, but until we get that under our belts, book charts are nice.
