These are the first color studies I've done based on David Hornung's book “Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers.” I started out intending to do the studies in gouache on paper, but I found that in the back of the book Hornung includes a section on doing some of the studies digitally. A new drawing app, Inkpad, is perfect for doing the introductory exercises on my Ipad. The app is a vector drawing program, that is, everything you draw is a shape.
So above is Exercise 1, which uses chromatic grays (grays that have just a little color in them) of all different values. And Exercise 2, same thing except all of approximately the same value.
And two more:
These are muted colors (they have more color than chromatic grays–technically, they're more saturated). I talk more about chromatic grays in an earlier post, Color 2.
Looks good! The boundless uses of technology…
