What’s on my palette

IMG_2122Combinations of Indanthrene Blue, Alizarin Permanent, Indian Yellow, Courbet Green, and probably Raw Umber, tinting with Titanium White. The mixes seem to be going in a wintry direction. I’ve been applying these same colors with different ratio mixes and concentrations of saturation as I expand the Out Loud series.
