If you're following this blog you may have noticed that I like to experiment with limited color palettes and that I've used the Zorn palette before. The Zorn palette (Cadmium Red, Yellow Ochre, Titanium white and Ivory black) is a very good way to learn about color mixing and color temperature.
I want to do some portrait studies with it in the near future so after seeing it in use by the talented Aaron Westerberg in a few of his paintings I decided to do a color chart.
