I've been a bad blogger. I get caught up in work and forget to post. Anyhoo- I've been working with a limited palette lately. Using an old travel palette, I have been experimenting with using only 8 colors. Cobalt blue, burnt sienna, alizarin crimson, cadmium red, neutral tint, french ultramarine, yellow ochre, and hookers green. The results have been interesting. I wanted to see what could be done without some of my "go to" colors and the lessons I've learned are well worth it. The main point was to focus more on value than color and see if I could paint with as much depth as I could with my every day palette. Either way you decide. Here are a couple of new ones. I've been painting quite a lot lately so there's a large waiting list of images I need to post. I'll try and break it up into a few different posts to keep things interesting.
