Limited palette

Oil on panel, 10" x 8"
Both of these portraits are done with only 4 colors- white, black, cadmium red light, and yellow ochre, otherwise known as the palette used by Anders Zorn. I'm teaching a 2-day workshop for the
Portsmouth Arts Guild in a few weeks, called A little paint, a lot of color, where, using those 4 colors,  we'll do a color chart, work from still lifes, and on the second day work from a model. There's still room if you want to sign up.

Lovely! One of the most colorful zorn palette portraits I've seen.
