Painting No. 40 - Take Two

8" x 6" - Oil on Canvas Board

So after my color issues on 39 I took a step back and decided to do the next few using a very limited palette. For this one I'm only using Yellow Ocher, White and Raw Umber which basically makes the paintings have a sepia look.

I don't know if it was because I had already painted this once but it felt really good this time. When all I had to worry about was the value (and the composition - I forgot to mention that last time) I was able to relax and knock it out. This is the last of the tea pots for a while but I'm sticking with the limited palette until I get into more of a groove. I'll try to post a couple this weekend.
