After seeing the movie "Local Color" about George Cherepov , I purchased his art instruction book on the used book market. I'm partial to limited palettes because I think it creates harmony in my paintings. For this painting, I experimented with Cherepov's minimal palette of Prussian Blue, yellow ochre, Indian red and Titanium white. I was surprised how vibrant the colors were that I could mix from these dark, dull colors.
Plein air artists, check out the movie " Local Color" if you get a chance. I understand that it is available on Netflix now.
My painting is from a reference photo on the Wet Canvas web site's photo library.
