I never tire of painting with a limited palette. Pick any red, yellow and blue in your paintbox and limit yourself to only those in your next painting. You may find that the results you get are more interesting than using a green or an orange or a purple from the tube. And the neutral colours you can create are more complex as well. In the months leading up to the Urban Sketchers Symposium in July, I’ll probably be posting lots of sketches painted with a limited palette as I prepare samples for handouts I’m creating for my workshop. And in case you are wondering what I used for this: ultramarine, alizarin, aureolin. The very same pigments that I’ll be demonstrating in Barcelona.
