Yellow Roses

1/25/10 "Yellow Roses", Oil, 12" x 8"
A painting on smooth oil primed linen.  I am testing different canvases for a trip.  But I still prefer an absorbent ground.  This painting was a problem in values, since they were close, but in order to get to values that worked, half way through painting it, I had to switch to a limited palette to remove variables.  The palette was Quin Violet, Cad Yellow Light, Cad Yellow Deep, Cad Green, Titanium White and Ivory Black--sort of a split complementary palette.
