In cooking, a recipe is a set of instructions for preparing a particular dish, including a list of suggested ingredients. In painting, there are also recipes for particular subject matters and painting styles. Except the ingredients are the color combinations and the set of instructions are how to mix and apply these colors together to achieve the right effect. 

In this Technique Takeaway, Wayne will show you how to analyze color elements from a master painting, create a color recipe from the painting, then apply the recipe to your own painting. This technique is a straightforward method for increasing success in your painting while expanding your existing color palette in new directions.
