So using a slightly dulled yellow (naples) and a brownish red (transparent red oxide), along with a brighter blue (thalo), these vineyard views showcase some interesting muted color and tones. I'm enjoying the slightly greyed greens and blues. A few other colors were allowed in, but the palette was pretty limited. Sometimes the extreme summer heat and overcast skies from our smoky air mute the colors this way. Have you observed this? Enjoy.
