Still Life in a Limited Palette
About this artwork
Artist James Hartman created this summer still life using the Zorn palette. Named after the Swedish artist Anders Zorn, the limited palette consists of just four colors: Alizarin Crimson, Yellow Ochre, black and white. James arranged the table with artful objects from his studio and flowers from his garden. I enjoyed pushing this painting beyond giving up and using blue, James says with a smile. The painting has a rich build up of texture.
