Do you have favorites? Is this one? It's definitely one of mine! The limited palette is always best. Forgetting that is what caused my meltdown

This is a wonderfully simple design, done in beautiful color.
Not to pick it apart, but that reflected shadow light is great.

Excellent use of a limited palette Celeste. Really holds together. Nice cropping as well. I hope you are proud of this one.

This painting is a sales pitch for a limited palette. You got a full range of values and a wonderful color harmony. Nice!!
