Moses Botkin Mothly Challenge

Another limited palette challenge! What a duesy (I know where that comes from now I think... we just visited Auburn, Ind. and the Auburn, Cord, Duesenberg car museum.) Anyway - I painted a figure, of course. He is yellow. But I really actually like the painting a lot in spite of the yellow flesh. I used Indian Yellow with ivory black and tit. white. Indian Yellow is a really interesting yellow. Its on my palette all the time. It is transparent, can be very warm and bright, or makes a nice gray green when mixed with black as I discovered.
Today we are heading into Chicago for the last "leg" of our trip. A couple days being tourists in the city and visiting the Art Institute should get me good and inspired to begin work again.

This month's puzzler really was quite the brain teaser for me! I'm enjoying everyone's painting and you've all made it look so easy.
