…have any of you heard of the Hawkeye initiative?
CC has joined the party
I have been summoned
Let’s take this into overdrive shall we.
I’m just as confused as the next person, Killer.
HOW HAS NO ONE DRAWN MIHAWK YET??

I would like to make a public service announcement on this piece of shit information floating around the internet. I’m NOT going to take pot shots at an artist’s personal palette but this is just misinformation to thousands of other people out there who may or may not know better.
Number one. IF YOU ARE PAINTING, YOU’RE NOT REFERENCING A DIGITAL SWATCH. So first of all, you need to know where paint comes from. I dont even know where to start with this. I mean seriously, the statement about not being able to make pure, strong colours with cadmiums is just so full of ignorance, I don’t even know where to start.
If you need visual evidence, let’s take a look at this picture
This picture was invented before CMYK ever came around, tbh. Too bad Klimt is dead or else he would attest to this just like EVERY OTHER TRADITIONAL PAINTER will.
Mixing colours is not magic nor is it as easy as picking colours from a digital swatch. It takes practice to understand how certain colours react with one another, employ painting techniques such as not mixing white with every goddamn colour to lighten a hue.
Let’s take another look at a somewhat LESS brightly paintedpiece.
The saturation is not nearly as bright but the chroma is pure. There are no muddy colours, nothing is brown where it was not meant to be. Because Kandinsky knows how to mix colours. It didn’t happen overnight nor was he born with that knowledge. It was years and years of practise and work.
Even Klee knew what was up. He was not a master artist by any means but he worked goddamn hard at it and look what he created.
Here’s another Klimt because we all love him so:
CMYK exists because it does not know how to replicate the natural pigments of paint that can reflect light. It’s a beautiful, beautiful fake at best. I love CMYK. I even want to get a tattoo that says CMYK. But it is by no means the one and only.
So PLEASE. PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF AND CROSS REFERENCE YOUR COLOUR THEORY BEFORE YOU BUY INTO THIS GARBAGE. NEWTON KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT WHEN HE MADE THE COLOUR WHEEL GUYS.
PAINTERS SPEAK OUT FOR OUR BELOVED COLOUR WHEEL! REBLOG AND REPOST! Whoo!
EDIT// Additionally, I re-read that ignorant infographic or whatever and have come to realize that the artist classifies pthalo blue/green and hansa yellow as CMYK. That is not CMYK guys. CMYK is used for digital prints because you can’t use paint. Duh. God, that information is so wrong, it wasn’t even worth making this post.
My colour theory class also teaches us to use ultramarine etc etc in painting gouche.
thank god someone typed all this shit out because my kneejerk reaction to that stupid graphic was to yell WROOOOONG and flip over my acrylic brushes
seriously has the maker of the graphic ever taken a color theory painting class the first friggin thing you do THE VERY FIRST THING YOU DO is have to make color palettes out of just red blue and yellow paint
eats own paint in anger
While some of the specific claims in the infographic were dubious (to put it politely) - the red, yellow, blue color model basically came about because it was easy for painters to use hundreds of years ago with the pigments that were available, and because color was not yet understood to the extent it is now.
There is no reason you cannot make good colors with using red, yellow and blue though - it’s just an old approach which is no longer technically necessary.
I would go on, but I am too tired to think about it right now.
