Limited

I always like to start the new year with old things and new information.  Here I used a limited palette of Yellow Ochre, Alizarin, Ivory Black and Titanium White.  For me this allows me to start up portraiture again without being totally overwhelmed.  Every time I do this I am amazed at just how much can be expressed with only 4 tubes of paint.  I think I will keep this as a practice throughout the year.

Well what a way to challenge yourself....and bring in the new year!! I know what I would love in the new year, is to paint with my buddy more. Oh and loving your other path...always rendered delightfully.
