Oil on aluminum panel

Earth Violet

Brown hasn't been a color I've explored much, but I got the urge to use a lot of Earth Violet in one painting, an oil color made from reclaimed iron oxides in a polluted stream. I only have only one tube formulated by Gamblin as a thank you for those of us who supported the project by John Sabraw.

I painted this on aluminum panel and used gold paints too, so this not only explores the earthy violet but how the colors work against the silver of the brushed aluminum and mixed with gold paint.
