# 19: "Zorn for Tea"

6" x 6" oil on canvas paper
This number is 18 of a painting a day. My goal is to paint and post a small painting every day for at least 30 days in a row. The palette of this painting is influenced by Anders Zorn. Zorn was renowned for his limited palette, often only using the two hues, vermilion and yellow ochre plus black and white. For his more colorful paintings he would broaden his palette to include Veridian green and a cobalt blue.
