great work with the Zorn pallette, it is hard to paint without blue!

It is a great painting! Love that palette but too chicken to try it.

Great sense of movement in the foreground inviting the viewer to gaze at the church. Well done!

I really like this composition, the colors and the style. A super effort in a very short time period!

Thanks everybody for the nice supporting comments. It's so motivating. I have drawn/painted a lot more than usually since I actively participate here.

I'm gonna try this palette a bit more. The limitation of color choices is quite liberating.
@ tyree. the black (ivory) goes for blue so it's not entirely without blues.

I do have no sense of perspective. I realy should do more exercices on it. I can dwell for hours on the form of eyes, lips, noses, hair but a simple square church is just not possible without crooked walls and that road'll better have no cars on it or they might fall of :lol:

Very nice, I love the changes in texture between the trees and the cathedral, and how you've included the sunburst too. Well done - the palette sounds challenging!

Zorn painted some beautiful work with that palette. Worked well for him and it looks great here.

Ooo, the Zorn palette! Very nice.
I hope you put it in the "color studies" thread!
