Triad Challenge Criteria

Choose your primary colours for the mood you want to create.
(Some example below may save you some time in experimentation, however; choosing your own triad works as long as they are toned equally)

Use only the three primaries that you chose. With these three pigments, you can make all the secondary and tertiary colours and many other nuances of the original three. All the colours your create will work! And each pallet will create a different mood.

Have lots of fun! Try other primary combinations if you have time. Remember to bring the triad combination you used and include it with your painting for the challenge on March 16.

STANDARD -new gamboge, French ultra marine, cadmium red
INTENSE – lemon yellow, phthalo blue, crimson
BRIGHT EARTH -raw Sienna, browen madder, indigo
OLD MASTERS -yellow ochre, burnt Sienna, Paynes grey
OPAQUE -yellow ochre, Indian red, cerulean blue
DELI CATE – lemon yellow light, colbalt blue, rose madder

Member Art Challenge – open to LCA members only. London Community Artists would like to invite all its members to participate in this challenge. This event is meant to inspire while also encouraging participation by all our members. Note: Each member may win only once during the calendar year but are encourages to continue showing pieces at future Challenges!

The subject is normally announced at previous meeting and is open to your interpretation of the topic. You can win a prize – submitted pieces are voted on by members in attendance by secret ballot. The painting or photo should be no bigger than 8“ X 10”. The winner will receive a small prize (probably something art related of course). Stay tuned for future challenges.
