Vintage Rocker

Experimenting, Again

Passed this vintage rocker while driving around Boca Grande.  There was no place to set up an easel without getting in the way of lawnworkers, so I snapped a photo instead.  Will have to go back and paint it from life.  

Experimented with a palette I read about on FB that some artists were trying out.  Hansa Yellow Medium, Quinacridone Red, Pthalo blue, titanium white, and burnt umber.  Spent more time toning down these garish colors than painting!  Lesson learned.
