On My Easel - Country Evening - original oil figurative painting in progress
I did this painting in a more colorful palette, but decided that a limited one might be better for an evening dance and I'm pretty happy with this choice for a change. It's just black white, terra rosa and yellow ochre, plus a blue, which normally isn't part of my limited palette, but I just had to have it this time. I asked a friend for a critique - this one or the full palette one? "Oh, I like both of them". Sigh. Please don't be afraid to hurt my feelings - artists really, really want the truth! So, if you have an opinion, don't be shy! Will finish this one on the weekend and post it on my website, http://conniechadwell.com. Thanks so much for looking!
