My newest painting of Ophelia. It is rather large for me....maybe 3 feet by 2 and 1/2. This is the under coat of acrylic using just Prussian Blue and White. I have started the top coat of oils now using only blues. I am limiting my palette right now because I am scared to paint, timid in my choices. This limitation makes me bolder and the lack of color choices makes me concentrate on the strokes, the composition, the whole of the work. We will have to see if the limitation works....
