Painting No. 183 - Morning Road

8" x 6" - Oil on Canvas Board

This one was interesting. I had painted it using Burnt Umber and then laid the first bit of color down but was not happy. The colors were too primary, it was muddy - just not good. But I decided to let it dry and then go back into it. With No. 182 I had done a similar thing and added back more Yellow Ocher to pull it more into a neutral range and not have such a hot yellow tone to it. It's not perfect but it's a lot better than it was and it felt good to move the colors from one space to another.
