From Palette to Painting

 "Blue Shadow"
8 x 8 inches, oil on canvas

I've been doing a LOT of limited palette lately, so it felt good to wallow around in my normal array again. My palette got more complex, but my subject is nice and simple: a contiguous color scheme (yellow-green-blue), and an old standby, lemons!

Here's my palette:

And here's how the painting came together:

Thanks for looking!

Lol, you did more than wallow. Great eye popping color and beautiful variety of edges. I love the limited palette portraits/figurative too. Wonderful work as always, Sarah!
