Palette for Fort Erie I

I am using five colors plus black and white as the palette for this painting. Blue-Green (BG), Red-Violet (RV), Red (R), Orange (O), and Yellow-Orange (YO). I had already used this particular palette so I had a mixture grid already.

As you can see, this combination yields a tremendous number of colors, and this is just the bare minimum of combinations.

I use the Johannes Itten Color Star to find nice combinations that are harmonious. J.I. wrote a book on color (I have yet to buy it ... bad Coyote), and there is a kit with it, to make combinations. I will have to scan that too!
