This was done with a limited palette, really liking that a few colors give a more cohesive look. This is a 16 x 20 acrylic on canvas. C + C always appreciated.

It's very dramatic Christina. You manage, nonetheless to have beautiful colors even when you limit yourself to a few!

Thank you Charlie, thank you Celia for your gracious comment! Thank Ciusca and DLH! Curtis, on this one I used ultra. blue, indian yellow, alizarin crimson a bit of yellow ochre and of course titan. white. If you check out Roger Bansemer, this is the palette he primarily uses (the first 3 anyway) , but if you stick to 3 primaries you should be able to mix what you need and it makes it harder to get stuck with mud!
