Today I decided to search for the true value of the colors red, orange and yellow. I used a pepper to explore. You can see the test dabs I made and checked before starting to paint . Recently I have been noticing when an artist uses neutrals like a brown or gray in the background to make the colors in the foreground pop. I wanted to try that and added the polka dots for fun.
What I have learned so far :
The current list is
1. Limited strokes
2. Simplifying forms
3. Using neutrals
4. Only Fools and Horses on Britbox TV.
