Six Color Palettes
watercolor and graphite
19 1/2" x 28 1/2"
Lostutter carefully plans and considers the colors he uses in his compositions. His small color palettes are filled with samples of almost indistinguishable tones of color that Lostutter uses as a guide in building up layers in his work: “The little color charts are useful in mixing the color and making sure that the next layer I’m putting down is the tone it should be, the value it should be. I’ve got boxes of those index cards, and for many years that’s how I put my ideas down and I’ve saved them all.”
Gift of the artist in honor of Mark and Judy Bednar
