Name That Color

tree figure, surreal painting, surrealism, tree man

When we’re driving in a car, we often play a game called “Name That Color”.

Here’s how you play: You see an interesting color out the window and you have to analyze which pigments in an artist’s palette you would mix together to make that color. The other person playing has to agree, or suggest a different pigment to make that color. Everybody wins!

For example: The sky in the painting “Late in the Day” was based on colors of the sky we saw in Jamestown, Rhode Island during the Summer of 2014. The upper sky is made of white, cobalt blue, and pthalo blue. The lower sky consists of cadmium yellow, yellow ochre, alizarin crimson, and white.
