Autumn woods painting


 I had a need to make a wedding congratulations card, and since I didn't feel like painting something with boring rings or flowers, I did this.  I'm quite pleased with the colours. It's mostly burnt sienna, Azo yellow medium and ultramarine blue - the grey of the trunks is a mixture of burnt sienna and ultramarine, with a bit of titanium white, and the lady's hair is the same mix, just a little heavier on the burnt sienna,  I used a tiny bit of yellow ochre for the person on the far side's hair and trousers.   The outlining is ultramarine blue too.   

Why all the detail?  Well, I came across the xkcd colour survey and was alarmed by:

The color names most disproportionately popular among women:

  1. Dusty Teal
  2. Blush Pink
  3. Dusty Lavender
  4. Butter Yellow
  5. Dusky Rose

The color names most disproportionately popular among men:

  1. Penis
  2. Gay
  3. WTF
  4. Dunno
  5. Baige
:-DDD
