When all my will is gone you hold me sway
I need you at the dimming of the day - Richard & Linda Thompson

A larger studio painting, worked up from a smaller sky study. I feel this worked well and I’ve learned a lot while working on it.

It started with a fairly strange palette of quite unbalanced colours ie. an orange green, an orange red, a greenish blue, a warm violet and a cold blue. I didn’t use “central” colours at all untill the later stages when most of the painting was already established, so in the last stages, I hit it with a revised palette of each pure colour.

Keeping these in reserve until the later stages meant that I could tap the strength of each new colour to counterpoint the deliberately subdued larger areas.
