Opinicon Road In Winter 6" x 8" Oil on board
The palette for this small painting is ultramarine blue, cerulean blue, alizarin, cadmium red light, cadmium yellow med., lemon yellow , titanium white and the chromatic black that I have slowly been experimenting with.
During the course of the painting , I have tryed not to use the 'black' by itself but in mixtures of two or more colours.
Many times there have been surprises, some not unpleasant. I shall continue to experiment with chromatic black and perhaps use the successful results in other paintings where it is warranted .
The time spent on this painting was less than one hour.
