Morning at Halifax Drive, Port Orange

Before it got too hot, I went by the Halifax river in Port Orange and painted these Victorian-style houses from across the street under the shade of a palm tree. It was about 90 degrees at 10am, but I finished it quite quickly, as usual. It was very idyllic, very little traffic and birds fishing in the river behind me. 8x10, masonite, ultra, burnt sienna, yellow ochre and white. $300.
Bevor wir wieder 40 Grad bekamen, malte ich diese alten Viktorianischen Haeuser beim Halifax Fluss in Port Orange. Es war sehr idyllisch, im Schatten einer Palm zu malen, wenig Verkehr, heisse Sonne und einige Ibise, die im Fluss nach Futter suchten. 20x25cm, Oel, Ultramarin Blau, Gebranntes Sienna, Gelber Ocker und Weiss.

Lovely, it seems quiet complex but you maneged to simplify it very well.

Good job!

Limited palette? Because it's so much easier! And I love the color combination. I think those colors work great together. Do you agree?
