Acrylic on 32"W x 36"H x 1.5" wrap canvas
Winter seems to bring on a desire to work more with red. In this painting I am working with those reds, a touch of turquoise, azo yellow and burnt umber. My neutrals are a mixture of those colors in the painting plus white. I began this one with the idea of of a vertical line composition using raw umber for the lines and then filling color in with a brush. As the paint began to build up and thicken I switched off to a palette knife. This enables me to do a lot of my mixing of color on the canvas itself. A roller was used for a softening effect. Lastly, I played around with the detailing. Do you like?
