I wanted to try painting something different with a limited palette. I gave myself just 4 colors -- all but the black being warm A Crimson, Cad yellow, VD brown and Midnight Black. The result was incendiary! The painting captures the peaceful tranquility of the chaotic rebirth of a forest -- a blazing forest fire. The main focus is the consumption of a stand of trees while the outliers patiently wait their turn to be fed to the flame.
