After painting for a few years most artist end up with a favorite stand range of colors they use. I noticed that the colors I pick are primary modern colors, permanent rose, phthalo blue and green, yellow. I have avoided classic earth pigments, for some reason. Well I decided to give a couple a try, Raw Sienna, and Iron oxide red and see what they are like. Decided a landscape would be a safe subject.
Found I love the Raw Sienna, it is a shade of yellow that I just could not get from my standard yellow like Cad. yellow. But also found Iron red oxide is tricky, it is a very dense over powering red that needs to be handled in small amounts.
It was interesting to try something different, hope you enjoy my view of a Great lakes shore line. Mary Schiros-art
