|Digital Color Wheel|
Recently, I bought James Gurney’s book, Color and Light. Following his guidelines on Gamut Mapping, I created a digital color wheel in Illustrator that mixes twelve colors with each of their complements to reach neutral gray in the center. I then placed a Gamut Mask over the wheel that limits the colors I will premix and use on the painting. The purpose of this is to create color harmony in the painting, and also stay in harmony with the surroundings where the painting will hang.
It will be fun to see how the painting progresses… stay tuned!
