Palette Talk #3
I liked the idea of continuing my palette series. This one was a challenge, with the butcher’s tray and two palettes, brushes, glassware, water jar and paint tubes. I set this arrangement up outside on our front deck in direct sunlight — my favorite method for working outside! I walk around the display, taking numerous photographs at various angles. My aim is a casual set-up, not a formal one. Shadow patterns also add interest and depth to the painting. I feel it is better to have too much in the set-up as opposed to a few objects. The brushes add exciting diagonal patterns and with the foreground palette leads the eye into and around the pictorial space. It ended as a “high key” painting — a limited dark value pattern.
