This is my 4th painting for the challenge. I need to study the Zorn palette more so wanted to see if I could make it work for me with one of my Provence landscape photos. I am definitely struggling trying to make this palette work. Normally I would paint this in purples, blues and reds giving a vibrant painting so you can see how hard it is for me. The light grey is supposed to take on a blue tinge against the ochre and reds, but I am having difficulty seeing it. This Saturday's tutorial will introduce some additional accent colours which might make it all make more sense to me.
