Trio of Canvases

Tonight I painted 3 small canvases. Here is the link to the 366 Days of Art post.    
 I like how they turned out. All different with a white flower tying them all together.  

  
 Orange Flower Materials:

  • Liquitex professional Naphthol Crimson, alizarin Crimson, cadmium orange
  • Golden acrylic paints cadmium red light, and cadmium yellow light

    Green Flower Materials:

  • Golden acrylic colours phthalo green, light green yellow, green gold, cadmium yellow light
  • Liquitex basics brilliant yellow green, light green

    Copper Flower Materials:

  • Liquitex professional acrylics Naphthol Crimson, cadmium orange
  • Golden acrylic colours phthalo green, light green yellow
  • Pebeo iridescent copper

All three have golden acrylic carbon black and Liquitex basics titanium white for the flowers.    

 I started with the two small canvases – 3″ X 9″ but I had so much paint that I grabbed the third canvas which is 6″ X 6″. I wanted to make the backgrounds super bright and layered with a simple flower in the foreground. I like how the turned out. 
Side note: I’m making canvases because I have my first show of the year next weekend so I need to build up some stock! Although I really need to think about how I’m going to display all this now. Things to think about.
