Jeanne Dobie: Color Mixes

Jeanne created this quick reference guide/illustration to show examples of color mixtures and techniques she used to create “Sun Dance.”

“Individual color mixtures are trademarks of my paintings,” says Jeanne Dobie. “For me, luminosity is the key – vibration and glow, not just brilliance. Daniel Smith paints help me capture the feeling of light which is so important to my paintings”.


Jeanne’s Pallet:
Quinacridone Gold, Quinacridone Coral, Quinacridone Burnt Orange, Quinacridone Rose, Cobalt Teal Blue, Cobalt Blue, Viridian, Phthalo Green YS, Aureolin, Cadmium Red.
