i found the palette meme’s very good practise, but i wanted to see one with darker colours, say, maybe of a more classical feeling? these are a compilation of twenty famous paintings, they differ in age and style in hope to satisfy every need. below are a list of every painting, which should all be easy to find after a quick google search. it might be nice to see these colours work in their original palette!
i picked paintings i’m sure most of you have seen before, with artists very familiar. now, there’s important to note that one painting could have many different versions and colours, so i’ve tried to find the most true-to-life pictures in order to get these colours and not photoshopped ones.
i’ve also blurred every strip to get as many shades as possible. i hope you’ll like them!
