The trick I do with color

Today I am sharing how I create color when I start my paintings.

From the beginning, I heavily harmonize them.

Even though the painting is still very raw and unfinished, the harmonized color makes the work look cohesive.

Check this out.

This practice of creating beautiful colors keeps me excited in the early, and sometimes ugly stages of my art-making.

It also makes the colors that are not harmonized stand out.

How do you create colors in the early stages of your art?

Let us know in the comments!

I hope you have a great day today.
