    In-cubator

    After Cézanne, here's a loose copy of a still life by Braque one of the cubism founders.
    This is another test exploiting the new hard knife and very low loading thick oil.
    I used a limited palette made only of white, green ochre, yellow ochre, ultramarine, burnt Sienna, umber and Payne's grey.
    I mixed directly on the canvas and in place and picked some colors I got also in some other areas in a few cases.

    This painting is RICH with color...very painterly...I like it a lot my friend !!!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Caesar... amazing results from a limited palette. as Steve said this is a Rich painting.. the implied colors and it has a real oil painting feel to it. Very nice work... you are on a roll with some very successful works with this technique. I have found that by selecting a careful and limited set of colors I can get a much stronger and more coherent painting than just splashing around with every color I can... although it might not look that way sometimes..
