Working with a Limited Palette: Continuing on the Theme

Wishful Thinking
12x12 oil on panel
Raw umber, ultramarine, cobalt, alizarin crimson, cadmium red deep, yellow ochre, cadmium yellow light, and titanium. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8. Limited palette, eight colors, very conservative. The green and gray acting as comic relief for an otherwise traditional, primary-color study. Oh yeah, all on a turquoise-tinted panel... hee, hee, hee. I love seeing the turq peek through the reds. After all - what is color if not a toy to be played with? So named because, in our draught prone region, we often dream of rainy days.
