11 x 14 inch .. oil on paper .. alla prima .. painted Feb 20/24 .. a continuation of the mother load experiment.
Donna: this is for you.
I dabbed the original colors to convert them and then made my colors using those as my triad and black and white.
.. and then I started to paint .. . For my cools I added more of the muter color as in more of the blue and yellow to get blue yellow. You get the run. For my warms I used some of the original color before muting. That makes the originals stand out.

Thanks for the photos- nice painting! I can see how your original yellow stands out, some red too. You made a good variety of greens that look so natural next to each other, thanks to the mother color. Will you be trying this with landscapes too?
 
Thanks Donna .. I use it in variation all the time. Sometimes all in and other times selected color. I like to allow the piece I am painting tell me what I am going to do with my color. Somethings just call for it all and others not so much.
 
Love seeing these photos along with the process. Fascinating! I like noticing the original colors popping out, and the muted versions supporting them. This is really informative - and another lovely painting, too. Fun stuff! ❤️

Thanks for the explanation. Great impact from the central colours.
 
Thank you Jo and JennieJo; and you’re welcome. Nothing new, just an old technique.
 
Thanks for showing the mixes. You have a very colorful painting without it being too bright and garish. ❤️ 🌸🌻
 
Great staff Wayne! Just out of curiosity, what palette do you use? I mean, do you use only primaries or as it feels...
 
Thanks Zoran. I go by feel. If I want something even when into a piece inwill add it. I do a lot of primary sdding one extra blue or red or yellow. I got bone black a while ago and use it a lot these days.
