Limited Palette--Analogous: Cadmium Yellow, Permanent Green Light, Cadmium Orange, Yellow Ochre, Raw Umber, Titanium White
Who would have thought that a palette of yellows would more nearly approximate the colors of the Cove on a cloudy, misty day than greens and blues and grays? And who would have thought that raw umber could look blue? The blue in the water is raw umber and white. These types of palette experiments show without a doubt that color is relative.
