'Paintbrush Pot and Paint'

'Paintbrush Pot and Paint'
oil on board
8" x 8"

I made this painting this afternoon and used a limited palette of burnt sienna, cobalt blue, ultramarine, yellow ochre, titanium white and added a touch of cadmium yellow and red for the brush handles. I'm liking the muted colours that have resulted from the limited palette. I also set a time limit in order to stay 'loose' and almost made it to the finish line in time! I might re-visit the pattern on the pot as I'm not sure it's quite there yet. Over all it's been a good afternoon's work.
