In this painting I used only a limited palette of ultramarine blue, yellow acre, and burnt sienna, plus white. I started with flake white and finished up with titanium white. I prefer the flake white because it is warm and semiopaque, so it lightens my colours gradually. Whereas the titanium white is so opaque and a little cool. It can be overpowering.
I also kept the brushstrokes quite limited and tried to place the paint and not blend.
