Revisiting the Gold Mine - May 2014

"Gold Mine Path" - Pastel - 9x13 - May 2014"
Revisiting the Gold Mine - May 2014
I painted the first one quickly because I was so excited to finally get a photo of the Gold Mine ruins in Villa Rica, GA.  It was posted earlier and used purples, yellows and greens.    I revisited the painting a second time and made all the colors more subdued.   I like it better.    Purple is always my go to color.   I've noticed other artist also have similar color palettes in their paintings.   Some artist I can recognize their work simply by their color use.   I think I will lay out some colors I rarely use and make myself paint this with a very different palate.
