Stone Home 11" x 14" O/P
Finally able to get back on line after four days of not being able to get on line. The problem is now solved.For this particular painting, I decided to go back to the area of the "Inner Harbour" and have a 'stab' at an older home. (Instead of a boat !) The weather was just right for plein air painting.
My palette for this piece was, ultra marine blue, alizarin, cad red light, cad.yellow med. cad yellow light, Naples yellow, yellow ochre, green and titanium white. Three more colours than my usual limited palette and...a number six hog hair brush and a 'liner brush'.
'til next..
