It should be possible in theory to mix virtually any color, with the exception of the super colors, with a limited palette. However, I have almost gone crazy trying to mix the highlights in Lucia's hair. Sometimes they look orange, sometimes they look purple, sometimes they look red --- but I can never get it quite right, nor can I get the intensity quite right. Is there something about photographic prints that cannot be easily replicated with a limited palette of oil paints? Also, I begrudge giving up any intensity at all because at heart I want to EXAGGERATE and I want more DRAMA and I know that in the early stages of following the DMP method I am not allowed to do that. So I think if I could just exactly replicate what's in the photo I would be happy. I would be interested in hearing from those people who are more experienced in this area. Thank you.
