Just Scratching Around by FranEvans

My hubby, (Ian Osborne) is always going on about the virtues of using a limited palette. Well, I’ve used every colour I could find here! It was great fun!
Acrylic on 325gm watercolour paper. Original for sale.

Colours used: Ultramarine, cadmium yellow, cadmium red, burn sienna, burnt umber, violet, emerald green and whatever else I could find!

    Super aussi d’avoir nommé les couleurs utilisées. On oublie souvent de le faire.
