Topic – The Triad and its nuances – April 2020
WINNER: Donna Larkin (at virtual meeting held via Zoom on April 6, 2020
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
