Sir Mix-a-Lot

Here is my palette and the end of the day. It’s quite a mess, for me at least. The photo also includes my color “palette” for this particular painting, which is mostly a monochromatic blue with a few areas of sienna. The colors I used were cobalt blue, ivory black, burnt sienna, olive green, and titanium white. I always use black as a muted blue.

I’m finishing up this new painting, and I wanted to post something about the process before a photo of the finished piece. I’ll be glazing this week and adding some touch-ups. I’ve been looking forward to this one for about a year.
