The Lonely Bull (SOLD)

This is a limited palette painting using five colors: ultramarine blue deep, cadmium red light, cadmium yellow light, titanium white, and a little burnt sienna. I typically use about 14 colors in a painting. With this painting, I wanted to try restricting my color use, so I could see the range I could get with fewer colors. The reason one would use so many colors is out of convenience, allowing for quicker mixing and therefore, less time. All one really needs is a red, yellow, blue, and white. I am pleased with how this painting turned out, and I hope you are as well.
