Palo Duro Canyon Study II

This is the 2nd of 5 studies I did from photos after I returned from our plein air trip to Palo Duro Canyon State Park. As I stated yesterday, I used a limited palette while traveling. Those colors were: alizaron, cad red light, yellow ochre, cad yellow light, sap green, cobalt blue, ultramarine blue and white.

During the Weekend with the Masters Workshop, I attended a talk and slide show by Scott Burdick (whose travel paintings are incredible). He stated that when he flies he uses water based oils. We drove to Texas, so this wasn't an issue, but I'm wondering if anyone else uses water based oils. I've never tried them.

Really nice. I like the color. Do you use untempered masonite?

Pam, Thank you for following up on my question from your last post. Another beautiful painting! I love this series, just brilliant colors, and abstract composition! On another subject, I use the water soluble oils from Holbein. They are great, very easy cleanup, soap and water.

I've been enjoying your colorful studies, Pam. They help me to imagine the canyons and hope to actually see them someday soon!
