Been interested in the works the Swedish painter Anders Zorn (1860 - 1920) was able to pull off using only four colours. White, Ivory Black, Yellow Ocher and Cadmium Red. Instead of using blues to cool things down, Ivory Black mixed with Titanium White gives a cool grey, which looks almost blue next to warm colours. I wanted to experiment with those colours in this study and see if it would be something worth trying for the final painting. I'll make another study next with a more contemporary palette to compare the two.
Here is my Palette with some progress steps taken while painting.
