Challenge 61 - Color Palette From a Painting You Love

FFFC Challenge 61 – September 2011                                       Due: Sept 30 noon ET
Select a color palette from a painting                      Host:  Delores Hamilton                                   

Let’s look at what color combinations have been used successfully in paintings by master and contemporary artists and try one out!

This challenge begins with selecting a painting, identifying the color palette used in that painting, and then creating a piece based on that color palette.  You can challenge yourself to use only the colors in that palette or you can add or subtract a few colors, if needed.  Don’t be concerned with anything else except the color combinations  in your chosen painting….This is a color study, not the art style of the painting.  Subject, style, techniques, size, etc are your choice.
