Nomad

For some reason this painting reminds me of the Aztec ruins from Mexico.....I think that it is the architectural antique that belongs to my husband with the huge sun symbol.  I haven't painted cloth that much and so I had heart failure when I first began....and then after many tries I wore myself out and relaxed and let it happen.  It is just a matter of following the light and shadow.......and keeping the wonderful feeling of the soft supple cloth.  I used a limited palette of Azo Yellow, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Thalo Blue, Titanium White and a tad bit of Ivory Black.  I did paint a 12"x 12" value study to break the painting down into a simple hierarchy of value shapes.
