Study in Blue 6"x6" oil

Again following Liz Wiltzen's ideas on color/value studies here is my study in Blue.   It was a little tricky.   I used blues in a range from turquoise to bordering on violet.  My palette was titanium white, cadmium yellow medium, cadmium red light, alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue, thalo blue, thalo turquoise and burnt sienna.  After it dries I will try to photograph it again because the dark areas when wet catch so much glare.

The one on the left is a b&w photo of the set-up and on the right is a b&w photo of the painting.
