Zangle Cove #7

6/4/10 "Zangle Cove #7", 8" x 8", Oil
Limited Palette--Triadic:  Viridian, Dioxine Purple, Cadmium Orange, Titanium White

For a landscape painting like this, the limited palette of secondaries is interesting.  Beautiful blues can be made from purple and green, interesting reds from orange and purple, and muted yellows from orange and green, turning the idea of "primaries" somewhat on its head.
