"Private Drive, No Exit" 10"x 12" Oil / Panel
Every early spring seems the same year after year. It is that time of "dullness", that time when the scarred signs of winter, left behind by the melted snow, are found to be discouraging to this outside painter. Many of the spring colours are dull and their values close together, making it harder to distinguish good "darks and lights" on the less than sunny days.
As spring advances we look forward to the fresh sites, smells and sounds and to be part of it all by being out there, painting.
The palette for this piece was Cerulean Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Alizarin, Cadmium Red Medium, Cadmium Yellow Medium, Cadmium Yellow, Raw Sienna and Titanium White.
My support for this painting was my gessoed panel with a coat of number five value gray acrylic painted surface. Very little or no medium was used in the painting of this piece.
So, until the Black Flys arrive, happy spring painting.
