This is a little different color palette for you. If you recall the recent ruminations here about new palette influences and what had been my palette for years, this guy tells a story.
This bright blue and gold NMM was a "go-to" kind of color combo for me.
I think you can see a substantial difference between something like this and the more muted earth tones and grayed down color palettes of recent pieces.
It's not to say that I am not using bright colors. In fact, I use far brighter tones now than I ever did before! Much of that is in the form of the Vallejo Fluorescent paints, but it still counts!
