Sometimes a subject catches my eye, even when it isn't the sort of thing I would normally paint. In this case I think it was the saturated colours which interested me, or maybe I was inspired by René's boat paintings!
I used my usual 'Secondary Palette', but I had to use a brighter red - Scarlet Lake (Arylamide, PR188). The basic palette is:
Pthalo Blue (green shade)
Pthalo Green (yellow shade)
When I need a brighter red/orange or yellow I use Scarlet Lake and Winsor Yellow.
