This is my first published painting of 2008 and as such starts a new year. I wish everyone good health and may your next painting be your best one.
This painting was executed on a Masonite panel , covered with three coats of gesso and after drying, a layer of number five value gray (acrylic) was applied.
My palette for this painting was, Ultramarine Blue, Cerulean Blue, Alizarin, Cadmium Red M., Cadmium Yellow M., Raw Sienna and Titanium White.
Before starting the panting, I had no other plans than to try and keep the colours warm in spite of it being a winter scene. I think that the warmness of the lighter colours makes for a more inviting picture. I hope you agree.
