Super Sad Study

Here is another study for one of my Super Sad paintings. I decided to do many smaller paintings or studies, and then yake one of then and work on a larger painting. I'm also using a limited palette on these, Van Dyke Brown, Yellow ocher, raw Sienna and titanium white. Its pretty amazing the variety of color you can get out of such a limited palette. My goal is to do a few dozen of these and see where it goes.

this is my fave of the studies. Consider a really long cape you can do more with.

Thanks Bill, I am considering buying a cape, and using that instead of a towel, though I kind like the towel--I think that plays into what I'm doing.
