I wanted to play with color, so I painted this egret (originally seen by me at Isaacson’s Bay a month ago) using all the colors, from black to pure white, and the colors in between. This was fun to do, and I hope you enjoy it as well. I used a wider palette than usual: purple oxide, cad. red medium, cad yellow light, yellow ochre, titanium white, ultramarine blue, sap green, alizarin crimson. I mixed the black background using several of the colors in the palette. This was completed in acrylics.
