"At Townsend's for Tea" (sold)

Oil on Board

Finished!! This was so fun to do and I really thank you people who commented on the painting in process--it encouraged me! I used a limited palette on this one, too, though I haven't yet got that alizaron yellow that I used in the first version of it. Sara Winter does beautiful work with a limited paletted and that inspired me to keep trying it. I used alizaron crimson, ultramarine blue, cad lemon and cad yellow light and raw sienna and white. It is so nice the way it keeps the colors working with each other and simplifies the process so much!

These last three are really fantastic Vicki! Love the light and the use of subtle colour here!
