High Desert, 9" X 12", oil on paper (BFK) SOLD
The landscape is subtle around Albuquerque, and the atmosphere hazy, so it seemed like an opportune time to try a limited palette. It's always a good exercise, because the whole strategy is turned around 180 degrees. Instead of fighting loud pigments, the goal is getting the most color possible out of the limited, neutral palette while letting value and color relationships play a bigger part in making the statement. The colors I chose (in addition to white) were yellow ochre, red earth, and ultramarine.
