One of the things I love about the "Old Masters" is their color palette. The rich warm colors add a touch of romance to their paintings. I created Touch of Elegance with that in mind. I wanted both the warmth and romance to reflect in this piece. I started this painting with a red underpainting then layered on a mixture of yellow ocher and bunt umber for the back ground. The deep blue vase is thalo blue. The entire painting I did with a palette knife, giving it a lot of wonderful texture.
