This is the second posting of a new work in-progress entitled “3 Peonies”. I have (pretty much) completed two of the flowers. Some minor finessing will be in order after the entire painting is completed and after I’ve had a chance to stare at it for a couple of weeks. My usual palette has been edited for this work since I won’t need all of the colors. Arranged along top edge of my palette from left to right they are: Cadmium Yellow Lemon (Rembrandt); Cadmium Yellow Medium (Rembrandt); Cadmium Yellow Deep (Holbien); Raw Sienna (Williamsburg); Fanchon (Napthol) Red (Williamsburg); Quinacridone Magenta (Sennelier); Perylene Crimson (Williamsburg); Viridian (Williamsburg); Ultramarine Blue Deep (Holbien); Indigo (Williamsburg); Warm Grey (Sennelier); Cool Grey (Sennelier); Titanium Zinc White (Gamblin).
