First Snow
Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $30 plus $7 shipping.

It's so cold out right now, that I thought it was time to find the beauty in the snowy landscape.
This one is done from a reference photo  I took in Massachusetts, but it feels appropriate for this week.

Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"

I had such a nice response from posting my first challenge entry to Daily Paintworks, that I wanted to do another one. This was done from the posted reference photo. I'm pretty happy with it. Again, here I am using the Zorn palette of colors: Cad Red, Yellow Ochre, Black and White. (No blues, greens, purple or orange.)

You can see all the challenge entries here:

Interesting collection of paintings!

Zorn Palette Plus Blue - SOLD

Landscape, Zorn Palette plus Blue
Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"
SOLD at $20 plus $7 shipping.

I had a lot of paint left over, and wanted to use the same colors again, but with blue added. Here I am using Ultramarine Blue, and it does influence all the other mixes...the green, the purple grey.
So, the limited palette here is:

Yellow Ochre
Ultramarine Blue
Cadmium Red
and Ivory Black

Fun stuff!

Zorn Landscape - SOLD

Zorn Landscape

The "challenge" this week at Daily Paintworks is to use the Zorn palette for a painting.
This color palette includes: Ivory Black, Titanium White, Yellow Ochre and Cadmium Red, that's it.

Pretty cool how many colors you can get out of just these four.
Just for fun, I have submitted it for the challenge.

What do I want to paint on a sleeting, freezing day? Green, of course! Out of my imagination.
(We did get to go to church before it got too bad out, here in the Maryland, DC area.)
