|"Mermaid" 5"x 7"oil on "Gessobord" c. 2012 TMW|
After looking at the palette choices for the first painting, I felt the ultramarine blue was just too cold. I did some more exploring and mixing and found that the manganese blue mixed with yellow ocher made the nicest warm green I was looking for. You can see the new palette with my favorite mixes circled. That was the fun easy part.
|Burnt Sienna, Manganese Blue, Yellow Ochre & Alizarin Crimson.|
Overall, I think the painting works and I am ready to call it a tie. I agree with the old sailors, beware of mermaids, they are tricky creatures!
