Folk water jug

Folk Water jug, Oil on 8" x 10" canvas

for the last few days I have been working on this on and off, I was looking to do a little experiment with colour or to be more specific limited colour so I decided to give a try Anders Leonard Zorn's palette which is Ivory black, yellow ochre, Cad Red medium and white. Some people also think he used cerulean blue as well and after trying this out I tend to think so as well. This palette is based on earth toned primaries. I must say this was a bit difficult to work with but some things worked out so I think I will play around a bit more.

Enjoy
Dave
