Last weekend I attended a Peter Fiore workshop. I alway get a boost of freedom when I paint there which I do several times a year. This time I was able to combine the looseness that I always seem to find there with my ever more focused approach to color. The base colors here are all semi—neutral colors derived from my 12 color spectrum palette. When I need a saturation boost I tint with a top line color. I’m not a conscious color temperature guy. I always figure if I see it I'll get it. Here I started out with the understanding of a two zoned color temperature palette. I think I succeeded.
This is a tough painting to photograph will ail the thicker than usual brush strokes. Its pushing a little red in the sky. Most of the subtle touch strokes are evident though.
