8"x 10" oil on board
I've been experimenting with color palettes and values a lot lately, especially with the effect of limiting the darkest values in my paintings. I feel like limiting the range of values to a higher key creates a pleasing, harmonious effect. However, my photo editing woes continue; in this case, the photo increases the contrasts and makes the darkest values look darker than they are in person. I did this with a palette knife using ultramarine blue, cadmium red light, and cadmium yellow light. I really like the way it turned out.
