Gustav Klimt's Palette

Caravaggio Colour Palette


Have a look at a master palette, the colours the masters used. Of course, today we have better and above all, chepaer colors to use. But they knew to observe and make the best out the little they had.

These color palettes are NOT made trough online tools, but with sophisticated digital camera from the real original

Computer screens and digital camers modify natural colors tremendously. You need in fact to calibrate your screen first when working digitally.

The digital copies you can find of the same artifacts vary greatly.

Look as an example at these versions of the same painting: Gustav Klimt's the Kiss".

This is the original thing...but is it the rel color? not quite, I suppose. The only thing to do is go and visit the museum:Österreichische Galerie, Vienna.

Gustav Klimt, the Kiss
The kiss (oil on canvas, 1907-1908) by Gustav Klimt (1862–1918) in Österreichische Galerie, Vienna
