|'In the Mauve' 8x10 pastel ©Karen Margulis|
These mauves are a must! The mauves and light peachy pinks are perfect for landscape painting.
- They are perfect for the dirt or colors under grass.
- They are wonderful layered with greens in trees and shrubs. They add a bit of warmth and light and make the greens come alive.
- They are perfect for dried grasses. I love them for fall landscapes but even a green meadow had dried grass!
- I love using them to build up the grays in the sky and clouds.
For today's painting I challenged myself to use this set for the majority of the scene. I used a few Terry Ludwig greens and blues and they worked perfectly together. Do you have these colors in your collection? What can you paint with them?
