What does a famous artists’ palette look like? Matthias Schaller collected palettes and shows that they are “an indirect portrait of the painter and of his painting technique.”
So I collected a bunch of paintings and matched them to the artist’s palette to see for myself. I was inspired to do this after reading this blog post by the lovely GraceandIvy.
I could do this all day… matching art up with palettes. It’s amazing how the palettes are an abstract version of the paintings. I use palette paper and toss it when I’m done. Might have to rethink and frame the good ones.
My painting palettes are just puddles in plastic lids that I wash when I’m done my letters, but if I ever go back to oils, I’ll have to photograph the palette along the way.
I think I will rename the word Café in the Café Letter series because it requires too much explaining… they are about life here in Canada. Sort of like the sequel to the book, told in letter format. If you have any ideas, let’s hear them.
