Roadside Barns   10" x 12"   O/P

This is the final painting that I ended up with after suggesting that I may do the sketch from the previous post Even though I used the sketch, I think that it is obvious that I deviated from it as well.

For this painting , I used my most resent limited palette. It is still , cerulean blue, Prussian blue, cad. red , alizarin red, cad. yellow med, yellow ocher and titanium white.At times, I will throw in a colour that I feel will be useful to the painting I am working on. In this case, I did use a chromium oxide (green).

The next photo is of the original scene, taken after the sketch. 


  I did add a few details from the photo when I used  the photo to check on a few of the values.

I thought that this exercise was an interesting little project.

'Till next...
