“Man In Hat #3”

“Man In Hat #3”


Oil on canvas panel

Recently I discovered a Swedish Painter, Anders Zorn, who was famous for creating magnificent works with a very limited palette. The “Zorn Palette” consists of Black, Titanium White, Yellow Ochre and Cad Red Light. I’ve decided to explore this palette for a while. I was amazed the variety of colors you can acheive with this limited palette.

There is a great write up on Zorn and his palette on a blog called

A Separate Piece Art“.

We’ll see how it goes. Looking forward to the challenge.
