back on The Board

It was lovely and overcast all day today, perfect weather for my 'studio'. I felt the desire to put more paint on this big one I'm calling The Board. It's been moving big shapes around to be more accurate but not narrowing in on any "detail" yet. It feels more 'right' but not more realistic. My palette so far is mostly burnt umber and ultramarine with touches of burnt sienna and dioxazine purple and focusing on the desaturated grey range; but with these pigments and the addition of yellow ochre I could paint a most lovely renaissance rainbow! oil on canvas, 48 by 60
