Please don’t tell me you don’t know Bela. Done for the DPW Limited Movie Star Challenge. Yes, in my world, Bela counts as a movie star. 🙂 We were to use a limited palette to focus on values. I used Pthalo Blue (RS), Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Yellow Light, and Titanium White. I added a tiny bit of Ivory Black to desaturate the color, but the dark is mostly the blue and yellow mixed. I used alizarin crimson in the halftone areas to keep things from getting boring. I thought these colors suited him. He was so much fun to paint! I think I managed a pretty good likeness, too. 8×10, oil on museum grade gessoboard panel.
