Matchday in Monte Carlo
Updated: Jun 14
Ive finished my painting of A.S Monaco F.C's Stade Louis II. Its a strange kind of stadium which is befitting of Monte Carlo as that's a strange kind of place. Shoehorned into the principality it dually functions as a sports stadium inside and residential dwellings and offices on the exterior.
Its turned out reasonably well and captures the essence of summer in the Mediterranean. Too many colours in use though for my liking. I'm generally less keen on paintings that use every colour under the sun. I've probably used a 30 colour palette
As well as his subject matter L.S Lowry only used a 5 colour palette so I think the limited range of shades he mixed appealed to my taste. Ive listed Lowry's colour palette below
Coming next. not sure,
