Join Will Kemp for an in-depth discussion in this video Extending the palette with intense reds, part of Foundations of Painting: Creating Palettes for the Landscape.
(gentle piano music)…- [Voiceover] So for this next more…vibrant image, we're going to push…the palette even further so we'll…have some more intense, warmer reds.…I'll be using cadmium yellow light,…burnt sienna, bunt umber, and then…introducing titanium white,…permanent alizarin crimson, cadmium orange,…and cadium red light.…Again I'm trying to imagine these colors…underneath here on the leaf so that…I can glaze over the top with these…lovely warm colors that will come…through from the burnt sienna,…so I'm just looking for tones that will…give me a nice base color for the mixes.…
Again, just with the cadmium yellow light…and the burnt sienna, always gives you…a really good starting point for autumnal palette.…That's looking pretty good, bit more yellow.…That's great.…
Then I'm gonna add a bit of the burnt sienna.…And then a tiny bit of the crimson,…just a little bit on the end of the palette knife…just to add that red warmth to it.…It's looking quite nice as more…of a muted yellow here.…Just gonna take that one back a bit…
Will explains how to simplify and separate tonal values into areas of light and shadow, how to use warm and cool colors effectively, and how to mix a naturalistic green palette — a major color stumbling block in landscape painting. A vibrant spring green, for example, can be easy to mix, but hard to balance. The same is true for warm autumnal colors and the vivid blues of summer skies. Will shows how to build these palettes and use gestural impressionistic brushstrokes to paint different landscape scenes. By introducing washes and glazes, he demonstrates how to simulate the atmospheric light of each season. So break out your brushes and paints. Start watching to learn how to mix color for the landscape and approach painting the seasons with confidence.
