Day Ten - Taupe, Beige, Gold

This is the painting I got stuck with yesterday. All those different beige, taupe shades, never mind the gold - I intended this piece to be a challenge and boy, it was! Mixing neutral colours isn't easy but if you don't do it regularly, it'll never get any easier!
6"x6" Oil on board, incl UK postage £110
I have started tomorrow's painting but now my gas heater has ran out so, time to clean the brushes! The temperature is to drop this evening - hope B will get me a cylinder refill for my heater in the morning!
I have one more coloured cup and saucer in my set, they will be in my still life for tomorrow. 


  1. I just love the subtlety of your palette. So soft and serene.

  2. Thank you Carroll, I did find it difficult but very satisfying
