This is beautiful. The colors you've chosen are perfect for each other.

I think it was Leonardo Da Vinci who said Painting was a superior art that sculpture, because trhough painting you can  produce an a sculpture but not the other way around. Nice Work

Hey C. Brown, Thank you so much. My palette for this was,

1.Flake White

2. Yellow Ochre Pale, W&N

3. Burnt Sienna, W&N

4. French Ultramarine Blue

5. Viridian

6. Ivory Black

The greens were mixed from White, Yellow Ochre Pale, and Ivory Black. I only used a little bit of the Viridian, here and there for some cooler green accents.

For the Statue I used White, Burnt Sienna, and Ultramarine Blue. I mix a warm value string and a cool value string, and then mix the two strings together, to make neutrals. That way, I can go a little warmer if I want, or a little cooler.

Thank you again. Also my mediums were Gamsol, and M.Graham Walnut Alkyd. My brushes were just cheap ol synthetic Flats, sizes 2, 4, and 8

Very beautiful.  I love the 3D look of the angel and the background is dynamite.
