Window Ledge Bouquet

I was experimenting with a limited palette here. (4 colors & white) The colors were Viridian, cad yellow pale, cad red deep and permanent blue.  It's quite interesting and lots of premixing was necessary because let's face it, I was not used to it.  Normally, I have my entire array of colors to pick from.  I was finding that pet mixtures were dominating my work and I wanted to break out thus this palette.  I got it from an older Charles Sovek book.  He was one of my teachers.
