Yellow Ochre

Spring Bales  18" x 24"

Spring Bales 18″ x 24″

This painting helped me use up one of the tubes of yellow ochre that I have stockpiled. Sometimes when I’m at the art store, I have trouble remembering what colours I need. For some reason I always pick up a tube of yellow ochre. Even after this painting I still have two unopened tubes in my cupboard (but no burnt umber or sap green which I need most).

  1. Lovely use of yellow ochre. Now, how about too many tubes of Payne’s Grey?

      Maybe we could do a trade?

  3. Hi Suzanne. I used burnt sienna, burnt umber and yellow for the warm areas. For the shadows I added some cerulean blue, phthalo blue and alizarine crimson.
