Cool. Very Barbizon with post-Impressionism leanings! Have you been looking at Pissarro?
Beautiful work. I'm a graphic artist with a hobby of landscape oil painting. I paint in the Hamptons Long Island and the landscape is simiiar to your Mass landscape. I have a hard time matching the muted orange colors which you seem to hit right on. Could you share with me the pigment you are using?
Hi Greg, thanks for your comment, I mix all my colors from a basic limited color palette, warm & cool of red, yellow & blue. I like Williamsburg, Windsor Newton paints and stick to the cadmiums for the warm colors. I will use mars yellow and a burnt sienna too at times, I mix intuitively so I don't have a formula...hope this is helpful..K
Very helpful. Sometimes I lock into an earth color and it becomes a crutch. Maybe a cad orange or mono orange mixed with a complement will be better. Thanks! Sisely's palatte was interesting. Spectrum colors and yellow ochre and brown ocher. But never using both ochres in the same painting.
