Demitasse - sold

You wouldn't know it from looking at this painting, but I used more colors than you would think to paint this one. White, cad red, ultramarine blue, orange, yellow, raw sienna, and yellow ochre.

Oil on canvas panel - Öl auf Malplatte - huile sur carton entoilé

Simple but lovely. You are so good at maximizing the effective use of the brush strokes.

Happy New Year,
Bill

Well this is a depressing start to the new year. I like to come here to see good paintings (I think it says something about daily). Hope all is well and you didn't celebrate a bit too much.
