I was painting with a girlfriend and Christopher came running by and asked if I could paint him. “Sure!” I said, thinking he was kidding. 5 minutes later he comes back and says, “I’m ready”. OK……. So I started painting him and then finished it in my studio.
This is an older painting, but if I remember correctly, I only used 3 colors, plus white, for this painting. Ultramarine Blue, Permanent Alizarine Crimson, and Cad yellow medium. It’s really wonderful how colors can harmonize with a limited palette.
