Oil on canvas
Professional grade oil paint can be very expensive, so rather than waste it, I usually use the leftover paint to compose a smaller painting. Ordinarily I have a wide range of colors left over - NOT THIS TIME! At first I hesitated before composing this piece because I did not think that it would work with such few colors. I'm glad that I did. It ended up being a lot of fun to compose a piece with limited colors! I used colors that I would not use for a landscape at all. The result was a color scheme that is completely unique and unconventional.
