Snow scene - limited palette study 2

Snow scene Limited Palette Study 2
4"x6" Pastel 
on Peach coloured card treated with Colorfix Primer
The second in the series, this time using a limited palette of dark green, cadmium red and pale lilac plus white.

You can see that by using complements (the red and green) a more 'moody' or subdued painting is achieved. Compare this to study 1 which essentially used a primary colour palette of red, blue and yellow
