Sunrise At Caballo, NM
6x8in oil on canvas panel $125. SOLD
The only time of the year the sunrise is
in this position is during the winter
I am always amazed at the large swath
the sun travels from summer to winter.
The sun doesn't always rise in the true
east as far as my sense of direction
Day 13 passed in a blur of busy work.
We are learning about the
Ned Jacob Palette.
I took a workshop from Ned in the later 80's
at the Art Students League in Denver,
and his palette was all I used through
most of the nineties.
That plus ONE accent color if needed.
Like a turquoise for a door.
Yellow light or med, Orange, Alizarin (Perm)
Ultra Blue, Black and Titanium White
Beautiful harmony can be achieved
by mixing all the secondary and grays with
with these few colors.
The most important reason for using a
limited palette is to learn what is IN certain colors
Example... to make yellow ochre you have to use
yellow and a reddish purple.
Too blue a purple and you
get marvelous greens
Fascinating stuff, color!
I did not cheat and used the limited palette
for this painting knife painting.
