This painting and the one that follows, was painted using a Richard McKinley palette. red yellow blue, mixed to make secondary colors, mixed with white, when necessary, to make a dark, medium cool, medium warm, light cool and light warm. Both paintings were rather too dull and needed work in the studio. Particularly this painting. I see now that I need to soften the edge of the willow.

Here I am using Dan Smith inks and experimenting with transparency. More like a watercolor, I wanted the paper to glow through. It's not working yet, but is an interesting process. If you double click on the image it is enlarged and looks better!

16x20. oil pastel with gamsol solvent used in 'streams'. I did go back in after the gamsol had dried. Fun technique.
