Buried in Dinghy

Buried in Dinghy, 4x6.5" gouache, plein air, Diane Mannion

Noon Graveyard Shift

Painted this for James Gurney's Creepy Halloween October Graveyard Challenge.  Not a place that I would have picked to paint otherwise!  Dinghy grave of Bill Anger, 1915-1990, Historical Lemon Bay Cemetery, Englewood, Florida.

Used limited palette of ultramarine blue, cadmium red, cadmium yellow medium, and white... the basic limited palette I also use with oils.
Ghoulish Selfie!

 Started with pencil sketch and taped edges 
Limited palette of red, yellow, blue dried up and re-wet gouache
Mixed the three colors above to get a great gray for underpainting

Finished in about an hour... just wanted to get the heck out of there!!!
