March 2 Palette for 2 small square paintings

Image

This is the palette I’ve created for finishing 2 of the 3 small 12″ square paintings I’d like to get done. Often I keep the color scheme just “in my head”, but it’s better for me in the long run to make up a small set of colors like this, which is about 6 x 8″. Especially good if I get interrupted and can’t get back to the painting(s) for a time. And I like saving these little palettes for future reference.

Acrylics work best for me with these little palettes, since they dry so quickly and can be painted right over the top of a swatch that doesn’t seem to work. Painting is going pretty well today, but I have to quit way too soon to get ready for the art opening tonight of the 1 x 1′ Show at Osmosis. Such is life….
