Abstract, based on Umber-Ochre
This is a work in progress. It is based on a tone of burnt umber & yellow ochre, mixed into each of the colors on the palette. The combination is giving a deep warm richness to the overall look. Plus, the colors seem to hang together, since they are all tinted with umber-ochre.
