Pink Canvases -So Messy!

Seriously. These canvases were fun to make, but my hands may not recover.  
 
  First canvas, pink, orange and teal. This one is 16″x20″ and I used a lot of paint on it. I put colour down, changed it, put more down, painted over it. If you peeled back the layers of paint it would look like layers of sediment in rock. 

Materials:

  • Liquitex basics, quinacridone magenta, medium magenta, light portrait pink, cadmium orange, titanium white
  • Liquitex professional Naphthol Crimson, cadmium orange
  • Golden cadmium red light, quinacridone magenta, carbon black, fluid teal
  • Holbein mat yellow
  • Pebeo iridescent violet blue, vivid pink

  This second canvas is smaller at 9″x12″ and it was a lot easier to make. This one just seemed to come together perfectly. 
Materials:

  • Liquitex basics, quinacridone magenta, titanium white, light portrait pink, medium magenta
  • Pebeo iridescent violet blue, vivid pink
  • Golden carbon black, ultramarine violet
  • Grumbacher dioxazine purple

And yeah, it was a messy day. Check out my hands in the wee video below to see how messy. (Sorry, can’t figure out how to flip the video on my phone!)
