Alla Prima #3 - Limited Palette

This is the third alla prima portrait that I've done recently... this might become a series.  Anyway, this one is a little different because I used what's known as a limited palette.  In other words, I didn't use very many colors.  I actually started out with a full palette prepared, but I ended up using only a few colors... namely prussian blue, burnt umber, indian red, cadmium yellow, and white.  I used a dab here and there of cad orange and sap green, but very little.  Overall, it was about a 90 minute painting.  Hope you like, and stay tuned for two more that I started today!
