What is a color palette in art?
A palette is a smooth, flat surface on which artists set out and mix their colours before painting, often designed to be held in the hand.
How do you choose a color palette in art?
Painters who want the potential for both bright color and greyed color can choose from many other limited palettes, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. For a broad range of color, a simple palette made of saturated red, blue, and yellow pigments, plus white, is key.
Why do artists use palettes?
The artist palette is an essential piece of equipment for holding and mixing your paint.
What’s the difference between color scheme and color palette?
A color scheme is based on color theory, like a monochromatic scheme. A color palette refers to the actual colors that you’ve chosen, based on your color scheme. So if you chose a complementary color scheme, the color palette would include colors by name or by paint color. It’s more specific to your project.
