Anders Zorn portraits

Anders Zorn limited palette portraits (check the first self portrait.)  A subject near and dear since doing a limited palette portrait in Don Sondag's class at Crealde tonight--white, black, cadmium red light and yellow ochre.  Jerry says I must resist the temptation to erase the portrait so I can see if I'm making progress.  Canvas board is fairly cheap so, besides taking up space, what can it hurt?  Here's another interesting post on limited palettes (I'm especially intrigued by the raw umber studies) and searching for style in earth colors.  "Yah!  I vill overcome my frugal nature and paint extravagantly vith my cheap, and large, tubes of earth colors from Jerry's."
