This last month has found me back in the open studios of Los Feliz and LA Academy of Figurative Art. Last term at LAFIG, I took Rick Morris who was a really good instructor, who pushed me to try a different approach ot my painting. From his class, I learned about Anders Zorn's limited palette of only Titanium White, Ivory Black, Yellow Ochre and Cad. Med. Red. Since then, I have been hooked on just using those colors to acheive your range of colors for your painting. I plan to stick with this for a while and gradually expand my palette again. Here are two studies from this month - 3 hour sessions.
