Lone Pine, Lake Yellowstone

Mixing Chart, my Photo, Color Star, 8" x 10" gessobord Panel
This image called for a lot of blues, so my choice is a split split-complementary (if that is actually a term?). Yellow-orange with Blue-Green, Blue, Violet, and Blue Violet. I did a new mixing chart for the piece today. The mixtures look dark, and they are closely related, but with the addition some white, the tints will play nicely together.

I have tinted the panel yellow-orange, because there are so many cool colors that I want some underlying brightness, which will peek through in spots.
