I wanted to try using the same reference photo again today (as yesterday), and make the painting a little less rambunctious, a little more controlled, without loosing the swish.
And oh, I'm happy with how this one turned out.

The detail photo is more true to the colors in the painting.
This one is for the challenge this week at DPW, which is to pre-mix colors for the painting you are doing, and then simply apply them, without blending and mixing on the canvas. At least that's how I'm understanding it. Which is why I've shown a photo of my palette, with all the pre-mix colors. You can see the rest of the challenge entries here.
Welcome to my daily painting blog. Here I'll post my efforts to paint one small painting a day, with a little wiggle room by saying five per week. I work primarily in oils these days, but also love my watercolors. I hope you enjoy my work, and as always, your comments are welcome.
