An Original Plein Air Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'View from the Eisenhower Farm'
Gettysburg Festival Art Colony  2012
6 x 8

On the third day of the Gettysburg Festival Artist Colony,
I gave a workshop on working with a limited palette
when painting plein air.  I really enjoyed seeing the artists 
try various limited palettes as they approached their
next painting, and when we went to the Eisenhower farm
in the afternoon, I used a limited palette of Prussian Blue,
Alizarin Crimson and Cadmium Lemon Yellow for
this view of the mountains.

If you would like to see more of my work,
please visit my website or my blog. If you are
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.

very nice Claire,
I have been experimenting with a limited palette of the cad lemon, cad red, and ultramarine blue and I find the ultramarine a bit "limited"...might have to try one of your substitutes.
