So on my last post, I tackled a spring painting with a different palette than I have been using. I added some new colours to my palette (mainly in the yellow and red family) and purposely left out some of my “go-to” colours. I showed you the reference photo and my initial underpainting.

Did you think “established” painters don’t go through the scary stage? Well, lots of them do, including me – on a regular basis. Especially those that are willing to step outside their comfort zone or try something new. I have enough experience now to just push through it.
