Plein Air Study, three colors

I'm on the road so this is one from a year ago or so.

Inspired by a friend I did a series of seven or eight paintings in either oil or acrylic using a limited palette.  Burnt Sienna, Thalo Blue, and Cad Yellow Light were the only hues I used in this one, the first of the series.  Later I added Ultramarine Blue to get more vibration in the blues, especially where there was more sky showing.  I'm always impressed at how much you can say using fewer colors.

Summer is here.  The outdoors is calling...
