This 8x10 was painted at Cabrillo National Monument in San Diego on the Pt. Loma peninsula.  Amazing how much color you can get with only three colors.  In this case I used ivory black, titanium white and burnt sienna.  It was a great lesson in making the most of a very limited palette, especially in terms of subtlety and tone.  Less is more in this case and I am looking forward to using the palette again.  In the small time I have switched over to try a variety of limited palettes I am very pleased with the results.  The last few paintings definitely have a different feel to them and by default each palette I have used creates a natural harmony.  Looking forward to exploring this more.
