Cupcake #3

Cupcake #3, oil, 7x5", $109

I used a limited palette of only three colors plus black and white. They are: titanium white, ivory black, azo yellow, utrecht red and alizarin crimson. The black mixed with white reads blue, and when the alizarin is added, it reads purple. This cupcake almost painted itself, it went so fast!

  1. I'm loving your work. Thanks for visiting my blog. So interested in your three color palette. No blues... impressive.

    1. Thanks, Jill. I can't really take credit for my palette as it is sort of based on Zorn's palette of Ivory Black, Cadmium Red Deep, and Yellow Ochre. I did not set out to do such a limited palette, I just realized as I was painting that was all I needed!
