Adventures in dead palette painting

Recently decided to take a break from the higher chroma pigments and paint with a "dead" palette:

Ti. White
Raw Sienna
Trans. Red Oxide
ivory Black


Solace - Oil on Linen 48" x 24"

I may add some of the colors back after a while, but for now I like the results I'm getting.

Just thought I'd share the first large piece I've done using the limited palette.

Thanks for looking.

Re: Adventures in dead palette painting

This is beautiful. Limited palettes, and especially those low chroma earth colors, are really powerful. I hope you do more of these.

Re: Adventures in dead palette painting

The palette choice really suits your type of painting, with its timeless, myserious feel.

It is amazing the amount of colours you manage to produce and this painting is hugely successful!

Jessica - Thanks...and I will

SoftRoses - Thank you...just the adjectives I was going for

Rolina - Thanks. I'm pleased to say the color gamut possible with this palette is a little broader than I expected.

Re: Adventures in dead palette painting

I like your painting.
How did you get the green ? In your first post you
said your palette was Tit' White, Raw Sienna, Ivory Black
and Transparent red Oxide.

Re: Adventures in dead palette painting

Hi Patricia - the green is a mixture of Raw Sienna and Ivory Black. Ivory black is a bit bluish so it mixes some nice gray-greens when mixed with a yellow.
