Zorn Palette






This was done using the Zorn Palette, named after the Swedish painter Anders Zorn. It's a limited palette of ivory black, white, vermillion (or cadmium red light, but I used vermillion), and yellow ochre. Many colours can be achieved just through these four,such as mixing black and yellow ochre to make green, and so on.

yeah, I can see you had fun doing this... limited palettes really make you think about stuff - I never really appreciated that at A' Level. I'd get so much out of education now!

As always this is very nice work. Jack's a tough nut to crack, and you've cracked him... the sketch was cool but this is the business!
