Evening Service



Oil
9"x12"

I started this painting Friday with the intent of doing something different in color and just getting out of a comfort zone. Instead of my usual choice of colors I decided to use the invasive thalo blue, napthol red, and a few supportive colors. I finished it up Saturday with a little more contrast and a color contrast with a warmer color in the sky. My underpainting wich drove the darker approach was thalo blue and burnt umber. Not much fuss and completed it under 3 hours.
