Yes I did, and I finally have 'a' painting that I can actually claim to have painted this month!
I worked on this about three days and I am going to make it count even though I finished on day 12... Geezzzzz
I worked on this with a very limited palette. I was intended to try the 'Zorn Palette', but found it less appealing the more I worked with it. Soooooo... instead of using ivory black, I mixed my black with transparent red oxide and ultramarine blue. I tuned my yellow ochre with some cadmium yellow light, and used only a small bit of vermillion which I did not change, and actually only used a smidge of it since the TRO was more useful on this arrangement. Last, but not least, included in the 'Zorn Palette' is white.
My point in this explanation is that a limited palette can be a blessing when it comes to creating harmony, but also a darn curse if you crave more color as I did in this painting.
(The blue areas would have been black and shades of gray if I didn't make the changes explained earlier.)
