"I'm not surprised you're confused," Trish sighed. "This painting was made by a Renaissance artist named Fra Angelico. Like our artist, he used bright colors, but he applied them in a very different way. He mixed his colors thoroughly to create precisely detailed paintings like this one."
"Our artist," Trish expained, "used even more intense colors, and he didn't mix them very much, even on the canvas. Pick a brighter palette!"
