First out of several Pond Studies

This study was once again painted with a very limited palette of only 4 colors...Cad Red Deep Hue, French Ultramarine, Cad Yellow and White. I am amazed what a cohesive painting (almost effortlessly) you get when you limit your color selection. I am a true COLOR JUNKIE and find these little plein-air exercises challenging - it is definitely and outside-the-box experience for me to limit my color choices...what FUN!
