We were working on a landscape in my Impressionist class this week that focused on a limited palette of analogous colours. It is one of my favorite painting exercises to show how a limited palette can be used to create a luminous composition. It is also a great example of how little detail is needed when the focus is placed on colour.
I made a video showing the process. Here are some of the images from the video:
