"Still life in turquoise study 042120

This is a painting I did for my color research. During my color scales exercise, I have figured out what colors to use to produce a value scales for any tube color I use on my palette. For this painting, I used my turquoise scale, which has black, phthalo blue, cobalt teal, radiant turquoise, and white. I can get any value for the turquoise family with relative high chroma, so I decided to do a monochromatic painting. It is exciting to see the result. The color is so intense that is hurting my eyes. I can use this kind of painting to study the psychologic impact of a color.

I also want to test the market effect of this kind of painting. I am going to post this painting on Daily Paint Works (https://www.dailypaintworks.com/) as an auction to see the reaction.
