My first oil painting of the Trumpet Parts Series.
Yesterday afternoon was sunny and warm in spite of it being early February. I decided to bring a few trumpet parts outside to paint them, hoping the color inspiration would also be sunny and bright. I didn’t expect the color scheme to go in the pastel direction, but it did. What excited me was the shadow shape cast onto the table. I never could have created this in my indoor studio. Bundling up, wearing hat, gloves and scarf was well worth it.
Painting: oil on wood panel, 5″ x 5″
Limited Palette: Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Yellow Pale, Scarlet Lake, Burnt Sienna, French Ultramarine Blue, Pthalo Blue, Titanium White
