8x10 oil on canvas
I used the "Zorn Palette" to do this cityscape. I think this palette will work well for rainy misty scenes. I like the look it created, but I found myself reaching for the blue, which wasn't there. I was surprised that I could mix a sort of green color using ivory black and yellow ochre.
This scene is from James Street North in Hamilton. Cars head down hill, under the TH&B railway bridge, going north towards the bay. I may try a larger painting using this palette.
lovely work and lovely colours!
Catherine, this is too good!! Loved the zorn palette :)
Exceptional use of this palette! Beautiful painting. I can feel the dampness and chill in the air!
Between the palette and the brushwork you did a fabulous job of making this scene real to me. Worth experimenting with!
Your wet street scenes are so lovely to look at....do you do them onsite?
This is beautiful. I just read about "your" Zorn palette and want to try it. It is just so soft - great job!
I think you're right on with using that palette for rainy scenes. The muted tones are PERFECT. I'm going to experiment too!!
Nice balance of greys and color.
Thank you for all of your comments!
Stephanie, in answer to your question, I normally paint from photo references that I take. I am trying to get outside to do a few paintings more often and will try to fit it in this summer. Thanks for your comments.
This really speaks to me. I love its seeming simplicity.
