Caroline Jasper

Caroline, 6x6" oil, Diane Mannion


Portrait of my artist friend, Caroline Jasper while we painted in El Jobean with the Peace River Painters last Monday.

Used the Zorn palette for this painting!  Amazing how it works!  Simply... cadmium red medium, yellow ochre, titanium white, and ivory black.  That's it!  No other colors were used.  How easy is that?

Ivory black has a strong blue cast and actually looks blue when used with white.  Love how yellow ochre and black make a really natural green.  This palette is great for flesh tones, can't miss with yellow ochre and cadmium red… plus black and white to warm and cool hues.

The Zorn palette is often thought to have been used by Anders Zorn, Swedish painter (1860-1920).
