Outrigger Sunset

6x6 acrylic on gessobord
This is the view from the Elk's Lodge in Waikiki.  My sister-in-law has a wonderful talent for taking stunning photos (and a generous heart for sharing them with me).  I painted this for the Daily Paintworks challenge this week:  The Tres Amigos (using the 3 color palette).  I used cadmium yellow, cadmium red deep, cobalt blue, and titanium white.  Half way through the painting I was wondering," what the heck did I get myself into"!  I didn't realize how dependant I had become on a few of my favorite colors (payne's gray, alizarin crimson, yellow ochre,  prussian blue, phthalo blue). Never the less, I persevered on and am quite happy with the result.
