Mayacamas Mountains

Mayacamas Mountains, 16 x 12, Oil

Last weeks plein air of the beautiful Mayacamas Mountains here in Sebastopol, CA. I used my usual palette of cobalt blue, Cadmium red light, Cadmium yellow light and Titanium white but I mixed these colors to get a new analogous palette of Violet, red violet, red, red orange and orange. You can paint anything any color as long as you have the right value. I was sick of having so much green in my spring paintings here so decided to try a different palette. Isn’t it interesting to have this palette? It changes the mood of the painting.
