12"x6", Oil on Panel
I feel that my limited palette of colors here served me well for this painting! Alizarin yellow, quinacridone red, ultramarine blue, a touch of cerulean and radiant white were the colors I used. Although I would love to see my palette full of a whole spectrum of colors, I am not sure I would know where to start! Ever since I began using a base of the 3 primaries in my paintings, I feel my work has had a harmony I'd never been able to achieve before. When I paint with watercolor, inks and acrylics, I use as many colors as seems right, but in my oils, this seems to be my way of working!
