Light & Shadow

Light & Shadow                      oil on linen                      8" x 10"
I challenged myself to use a very limited palette today. So, for this one I used cad. yellow light, ultramarine blue, black and white. I always like the grays that you can create with so few colors, because then when you use pure hue, those areas really pop. It's snowing here today, but it's a good escape to imagine a warm day in a painting!

This really demonstrates the power of a limited palette. You ended up with a very powerful painting. Beautiful.
