SOLD – A limited edition print is available

Like my last few paintings, “The Golden Field” has a limited palette of earth colours.

For the sky, I added ultramarine blue and titanium white with a touch of alizarin crimson.
The central mass of gold was a job to get right.

I set out to find the right intensity of colour to harmonise with the rest of the painting,
not too strong as it would overpower.

I settled upon cadmium yellow deep with a touch of burnt sienna, alizarin crimson and titanium White.

Do let me know what you think, I look forward to reading your comment.
