Nice evening to eat on the deck

It was really nice evening today. I grilled some food on the deck and had dinner there. While eating, I read an article in the latest issue of the Artist's Magazine. It's about color palette for plein air, written by Michael Chesley Johnson. He was explaining about five different combinations of color palettes. Except for Earth Palette, which includes yellow ochre and burnt sienna, all others have some king of cad yellow and cad red. Then some options for blue and lightening ingredient and muting ingredient. Now I know why my last "Icy Falls" ended up completely unrealistic purplish. For the next piece, I might consider these options.
