Violet and Orange

Last time I painted these tanks in a limited palette of cobalt, burnt sienna, raw umber and Fr. ultramarine blue.

It was nice.   Quiet.

This time, I wanted to do a portrait orientation, focus more on the tanks in front of the silos and I wanted to punch up the color.

So I used diox violet, Mission's burnt sienna [which they say is more like a quin gold  deep], quin burnt orange and some cerulean.   Heavy on the violet.

This one is not so quiet.

Painting it made me really happy.   I totally channeled Wolf Khan the whole time.   [Seriously, that guy is A.May.Zing.]  I'll be doing more experiments like these.
