This is one of the lessons in my new course Mastering Colour. Each of these pictures uses only 3 colours red, blue, yellow. In each of the pictures one of those colours is the dominant colour (about 60% or the painting), one is sub-dominant (about 30%) and one is a minor colour note (about 10%). In each of these paintings you think you’re seeing many more colours which is just caused by judicious mixing of the 3 colours. Two benefits of this exercise are: 1) colour harmony and 2) a growing knowledge of the properties of each colour.
