Daily Painting Challenge, January 2015, Day 6

Project 5: When is an orange orange – and where?

This is the fifth in a series of 22 projects by Arthur Stern focussing on colour mixing, the full colour palette range and palette knife technique.

Chromatic greys and secondary colours (orange) are an advance on primary colours.










A first statement was done in quick-drying acrylics 24hrs previously. This helps me subconsciously consider things like colour mixing overnight before laying in the second statement in oils.

A third statement will be done in a week or so after the paint dries.
