Basic Information: Make a Color Study

 

Color studies are usually exercises people are forced to do in a class; but if you are new to painting, color studies can teach you a lot about how colors looks when combined together.  They are also a good idea to make on a small scale in order to test different versions of a composition before committing to a larger work.  You can make color studies by hand or do them digitally.  I made these by hand.   I used carbon paper and traced the same drawing onto acrylic painting paper.
