"Eyeliner (Terrier Study)," 6" square, terrier portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, $249. Inquiries may come to me via email.
I prefer to work with the same dozen tubes of paint, but every so often I will reach a plateau and realize that my paints are holding me back. That I need to do something to mix it up and take me to the next level. I'm at that point right now, and am trying to choose a new red, yellow and blue to play with.
The underpainting in this one is a vibrant red I have been flirting with lately - Quinacridone Red Light (Golden Brand), to be exact. Until this painting, I had been using the Quin Red Light in tiny amounts, to help model or shape the farthest edges of a form as they rolled into shadow. In larger amounts, it really heats things up, yet it's a cooler red than my usual cadmiums.
It's a strongly saturated color (which I love!), but also transparent. I am looking forward to getting to know it better.
Now off to find a suitable yellow and blue.
Thanks for sharing my paintings!
