Experimenting with palettes
Here are a few sketches, using different palettes
A garnet-inspired palette for a portrait of a dog is somewhat counter-intuitive, but I believe it worked out with this piece, "Portrat of Babka." As always, drawn freehand on my iPad Pro, using the Sketch Club app.
I experimented with the garnet palette in this portrait of my husband, watching TV. This sketch from life. Drawn freehand on my iPad Pro using the Sketch Club app.
And, again from life, here a palette of mostly blues. Drawn freehand on my iPad Pro, using the Sketch Club app.
Here, a palette of mostly browns. Again from life. Drawn freehand on my iPad Pro.
Limited palette can bring a sense of unity to a piece, and is a nice challenge for the artist as well.
