My personal goal was to see how I could reproduce a classic painting using my modern relatively high chroma colors, without using any of the classic earth tones that would have been used in the 1800's. The final result of my work is depicted below.
This should not be surprising due to the very broad color gamut of my new pallet, as discussed in my 5/2/12 Blog post. Remember that the colors that define the shape of the color gamut can mix any color that lies within the borders of the gamut. Therefore, since the old colors are generally of lower chroma and will easily fall within my new modern color gamut.
Also, note that I worked on this painting for over a month. A key to my success with this painting was the ability for my Golden OPEN acrylic paints to remain workable on my pallet for the full time that I worked on the painting. To accomplish this I used the pallet management techniques that i discussed in my 5/18/12 post. This meant that all of the mixed color pools were continuously available to be to either reuse or slightly modify as I modified and added to the painting. This helped to insure that I maintained a consistent and harmonious corer scheme.
I learned a lot doing this painting and I am even happier with the workability of my modern color set of Golden OPEN paints!
