Paintbook 51/52

…um…

…the last few posts from paintbook have been exploring an octopus motif using a palette of 14 colours, 7 “primary” and 7 “pastel”, with a bit of black, white and gold for highlighty bits….

…the general rule being the octopus colour has the corresponding pastel colour for the “suckers” and is three places away from the background colour and outline , “pastel” colour in the spectrum…

…i.e. red tentacle/pink “suckers”…skip orange, yellow, green….blue background and blue “pastel” outline….

…the first “swatch” (2 posts ago) explored all the background/outline combinations with a static tentacle/”sucker” pairing….

….then I wondered…

…what about the rest of the tentacle colour/”pastel” colour variants on all the background colours (not including same colour tentacle/”sucker” with same colour background/outline)….

…fuck….

…that’s where wonderin’ gets you….

…so the rule was….

…outline in the red, filler in orange, “suckers” in lighter orange, outline in yellow….

…then, green, blue, indigo, and purple…

…all seven colours in order…

….(I’d imagine I’ll be aiming for seven of these all starting with the next colour outlines and proceeding thru the spectrum as I usually do)….
