Working on my Limited Palette in oils.
I am loving the minimal amount of pigments - keeps life simple!

This is the second of my Limited Palette Series.
I have been looking and reducing my palette and strengthening my values!

I am enjoying finding something that I find pleasure in, in my oils!

About Me

My photo
Art has always been an integral part of my life. At the age of 50 I was able to complete a long awaited foundation course and HNC/HND. From this experience I have developed my love of pastel and watercolour. Rubens has always inspired me with his fluidity of movement; Degas and Lautrec I admire with their rough marks and blends of colour,their freshness of approach. I feel I have been given a talent for a reason and gradually the purpose shall unfold... sarah.orchard54@hotmail.co.uk Note: Images are Copyright Sarah Orchard © 2009
