Waves in the wind

I saw yesterday few video on the waves subject, they where very impresive;this give me the inspiration today to work some waves mouvement and color.
Here are three sketckes on the subject and a video who shows the use of Artrage in doing "waves in the wind", I recorded the second part of the paint process but all the paint was done in Artrage.

oil color palette & picker

A very large palette of real oil colors that I made this days ;
you can see the colors with the name of the colors,
the png image of the palette and the two pickers (the image who fit for ArtRage on the pickers place).

Some of the colors we see them better if ad a little white to the color:
this is why there are a second picker.

OneReal oil color , palette&picker

Real color and what we get on computer, is an importent question ;
can we have all the range of one real color?
To visualise the idea I show the image of a deep yellow :
the color from the chart color which shows all the shades of an unique color,
the palette & the picker( in Art Rage) :

As you can see, if you make the choice of the deepest shade yellow of the color,
on the picker you will have all the range betwin white and black of the same shade
but not the clearest shades of the color which are yellows all ;
then for the moment we need to have both,
the palette(or chart image_of real colors) and the picker.

On a different poin of view,
here are a Free Color Chart

Electric field

I just finished it, all done in Art Rage; for this painting I used the oil tool, glitter, felt pen dry and
paper texture layers.
I have heard from the radio that sister Emanuelle left this world, she was almost 100 and tired,I was painting and...
this inspired me how to finish the painting; I dedicated it to her.

Paint and Mystery
Paintings become more interesting to viewers when they suggest something mysterious or unknown about
the subject. New York City artist Gregg Kreutz describes ways of achieving that quality in oil paintings
