Tugboat at Wick

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! Tugboat at Wick Acrylic, 8 x 10 inches, 20 x 25 cm I used my usual 'Secondary Palette', but I had to use a brighter red - Scarlet Lake (Arylamide, PR188). The basic palette is: Raw Sienna Burnt Sienna Permanent Rose French Ultramarine Pthalo Blue (green shade) Pthalo Green (yellow shade) When I need a brighter red/orange or yellow I use Scarlet Lake and Winsor Yellow.
