Gray Day - Palette Knife Oil Painting, Female figurative


"She"
6 x 6 inches, Oil on Board
I like mixing paints to make grays. I actually like it. My favorite mixture is burnt sienna, cerulean and titanium white - which I've used for the background color. The dress was french ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and titanium white.
I had a good painting evening yesterday, listening to my mp3 player playing soundtrack music from the movie "Notting Hill". I especially like the song "She". (I have been thinking to use that as a title one of these days.) Anyways, it was a productive evening and I painted 3 female figuratives which I will be posting here in the coming days. All of them use the grays I mentioned.
It was a gray day.
Please keep checking back to see the others.
