Little 2 hour study

This small Alla Prima study was painted as the sun was becoming lower in the sky and the light through my studio window intensified the contrast.. Using the beautiful oil colours of  Micheal Harding's paints, I limited the palette to Ultramarine Blue, Cerulean Blue, Cad Red Light, Cad Yellow Light, Naples Yellow Deep, Alizarin Crimson and Titanium White. I touched a hint of Phthalo Green at the very end to make a good black. It was completed in 2 hours on a gesso panel measuring 6" x 8".
