Zorn's Palette

5x7 acrylic on Ray Mar Panel, Zorn's Palette
Trying to get back and determined not to let too many days go by without a brush in hand, I did this quickie using Zorn's Palette.  Cad red, yellow ochre, white, and black.  Today feeling stronger, the paints are out and its time to start my day.  Happy Painting everyone.

    1. Hi Stephanie, thank you, I usually never know when to stop. Not feeling well was a blessing in disguise, didn't have the energy to keep painting.

      Thank you for visit, all the best to you,

  4. Hi my friend.
    You are certainly back with your wonderful paintings. I love this one, it`s a beauty Joan. I have never heard of Zoms palette, I must try it. It looks a very rich combination, and only three colours and white, amazing. Well done my friend and glad to see you back and producing your wonderful paintings. All the best Joan.
    Vic.

    1. Good morning my friend, and thank you for your supportive comment. Vic, I learned about Zorn's Palette from Mariano, 2yrs. ago, he suggested that I give it a try. It is great fun and a challenge. Very simple palette of, Cad. Red, Yellow Ochre, White and Black. If you get a chance look up Zorn's paintings on the internet, can't remember his first name. But I know you will love his work, I will check and see if I can get his first name.

      All the best to you,
      Joan

    which make this a real little gem!

  7. Hope your feeling better now, Joan - I'm fit again!

    I love the painting, that palette really works so well. When I've finished drawing the 'Susan Constant' I'm going to try painting, and I'll be trying to imitate your stuff - if you don't mind. Because that is how I would like to paint!! (Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery)

    I'm a complete novice, but all ready I've learnt that it's the hairy end of the 'stick' that goes into the paint!! :0) Keep warm!!

  8. Dear John,

    You honor me with wanting to imitate my work. An artist of your caliber will probably be great with a brush or whatever medium or stick of your choosing. I look forward to seeing your painting. John, do try the Zorn palette, you will enjoy seeing all the various tones and colors that can be made with such a limited palette.

    All the best to you,
    Joan
