Painting With Zorn’s Limited Palette Cesar Santos vlog 073

#Zorn #limitedpalette #sketchbook

The other day Ian, a Facebook friend from the UK, suggested I should do a painting in my sketchbook using the Zorn’s palette. It is a well known limited palette consisting of White, Yellow Ochre, Vermilion and Black. I rarely take action on random requests but took this comment as an inspiration to demonstrate.

Experience how I paint the human figure. I explain every thought of the process, and you will see me apply every mark on the canvas in my latest video:

Witness my whole process of drawing the figure, from the construct stage to the final layers of rendering. You will hear my every thought and see every mark of charcoal on the paper:
