This is my start of my latest painting, Hippo.
I was going to do him on a 12x16, but after sketching it out, it just wasn't working for me.
I then decided on an 8x10 - much better.

I kept my palette to burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, cerulean blue, Indian red, titanium white, phthalo green, and just a bit of paynes gray for his eye.

I love having a digital camera where I can instantly shoot the pic and upload it on the computer. My daughter bought a new digital camera, so I bought her old one. Works perfect for what I need.
This was one of those paintings that just about painted itself. I love when it all flows like that.
