Accurate colours

In each lesson we use colour charts I have created, showing the main colours in the scene.

In nature there is potentially an infinite range of subtle colours and tones. Of course we can't mix "infinite"... or we'd take forever!

So what I have done is analyse the most important colours in the scene. Then we can blend using brush stroke techniques and glazes to create as many gradations of colour and tone as we feel the painting needs.

Look at the foam at the bottom left of the scene.

We know foam is white?
It turns out that particular foam is actually a light blue!

Even in the foam on the main wave there is very little white, we actually find a lot of warm tones reflecting the sunset.
