color theory

Weird. I’m usually very conscious about the palettes I use. But three of the last four pictures here have primary palettes, which is something I hardly ever do. Usually I go complementary with intensity variations*, and sometimes I’ll go split-complementary or analogous or off-axis binary, but I don’t usually touch primary schemes. It’s from my background in children’s illustration: every. bloody. kid’s. illustrator. uses primary color schemes for primary-age kids and it’s so cliche and stupid. But, huh.

* checking on the internet I’m finding color wheels rendered with an RGB color base; I always think of colors in RYB painter’s primaries, from my oil-painting days… interesting. I know about this, I just never think about it.
