Eclipse by alifann Eclipse by alifann

I was practicing how to paint using a mother colour pallet which was grey and purple that was added to every colour and avoiding using pure colours from the tube. I was trying to imitate this photographic muted light quality that I saw in old Polaroids.

Oil on Canvas 30" by 24"

I love your style. It Looks like if you painted combining the brilliance of oil paint with the delicacy and the lightness of watercolours. :)

Impressive! Beautiful! This kind of soft light is something you'd get by applying Early Bird filter on Instagram :sarcasm: (please excuse me, I'm a Gen Y kid).
