How to See a True Color When Painting

Posted by | May 18, 2012 | 0 Comments

As per Mr. Kevin Macpherson in his book, Fill Your Oil Painting with Light and Color:

The best way to see true color is with a color isolator, holding it about six inches from your eyes, close one eye and position the hole so that you can see the color of the subject area you are judging. This isolator is a small piece of color that you no longer see a thing but only a specific color note. When looking through the color isolator, do it fast. Trust your first quick impression. The color isolator will help you visualize without preconceptions.
