The Christensen Challenge

After evaluating my landscape paintings and finding it them lacking I decided to try something new, and challenge myself in a whole new way. I am Simplifying my palette and painting with larger brushes. I am using an economical color palette based on the one Scott Christensen uses featuring Pyrrole Red, Cadmium Lemon, Ultramarine Blue, and Titanium White. My plan is to plein air paint with only this palette on small panels using only a #1 and #4 flat bristle brush for 1 month and see how it effects my work. The plan is to do 30 Paintings in 30 days and see how it effects my work. Below is my painting from today.
