"On a White Horse"

12"x6", Oil on Panel
Sold 

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!

Little Luke is holding an "R", hence the title.  I think I enjoyed painting the surroundings in this as much as I enjoyed painting Luke!

Capturing the cool winter light from the outside and the warm light from the INside was a challenge for me in this painting that I did using my limited palette of colors. I've painted more than one version of this and I think this is my favorite!

This painting is inspired by a late-day walk in NYCity on a gorgeous June day. Capturing the feel of the last bit of heat from the setting sun and the cooler shadows was my challenge in this painting that I did using a limited palette of colors.

I've been really wanting to get back to the excitement I've felt with my painting and realize that the most fun I have with it is when I'm trying to do something more spontaneous, which often happens when I use watercolor and pencil. It's amazing how alot of the "needing to get it right" goes away when I switch mediums as I'm used to working in oils. So. I think I'm going to be doing this for awhile!!
