Palette Knife Callas

Palette Knife Callas

6x6 oil on canvas 80.

It is fun painting a series and trying different techniques. Here the palette knife produces a whole different feel/appearance. With a white flower like the calla the color of the sky, as well as the surroundings areas, influence the the purity of the white. I didn't even have to look carefully because the blue jumped out at me...both from the sky peeking between the leaves and its absorption onto the white of the calla.

We are working with a limited palette at the guild this month so this was painted with Primary Yellow, Permanent Alizarin, Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White
