The Zorn Palette

"Zorn Sunset" 
6x6 oil on panel

Anders Zorn was a Swedish painter who sometimes used a palette limited to Cadmium Red, Yellow Ochre, Ivory Black and White. With these colors he was able to create paintings with a seeming full range of color, with black acting as blue.
He was an international success and painted portraits of three U.S. Presidents. 
This month's Girls Just Wanna Paint challenge was to use the Zorn palette.
I decided to choose a simple subject and mix my colors ahead. This amazing array of colors is the result.
