Spring Morning Sunlight, oil, 14 x 11
A couple of local artist friends of mine who attended the Plein Air Convention started the Limited Palette Challenge, which is based on the five colors that Ken Auster used on the amazing painting he demonstrated at the convention. The five colors are black, white, cadmium yellow medium, alizarin crimson, and utramarine blue. I've been busy with lots of other commitments since I returned from the convention a week and a half ago, but have been very eager to try out this limited palette, especially after seeing so many wonderful paintings already completed by other artists for this challenge. I finally had the opportunity to go out painting with a friend this morning to a beautiful location in Alpharetta, GA. I was happy with the results of this palette, and will be excited to try it some more!
