My latest painting... moving into color.
Using a limited palette of black, white, cadmium red and yellow ochre - it's incredible the spectrum of colors you can get out that. Let me know what you think.

1. Beautiful.
I'd hang it in my room or over my piano. It's absolutely gorgeous.

10. It's not as bad as you think...
believe me, that's what I thought too. You've proven your drawing skills and painting is waaaaaay more forgiving than pencil and paper. Give it a shot - you can do it! :bounce:

15. That is SO great. Did you use oil or acryllics?
I sense you used oils because of your reference to letting it dry, and the utter richness of your painting. You are remarkable. :wow: :wow: :wow:
