Tonight’s piece started out very bright.
Bright golden yellow, phthalocyanine blue, grey, and black. Then I started adding white gesso in swirls and streaks. I covered the canvas in white which mixed with the wet colours underneath. I then started removing it in large stripes with my wedge catalyst tool (don’t worry, I didn’t waste the paint, it was used for a art journal page base). I added a little bit more white gesso as bright spots then sprayed it down heavily with water.
Not sure what. Maybe some doodling? Maybe it needs a focal, but what? I’m not sure what’s up with today’s art, but it needs something more. I’ll figure it out though and come back to it.
- Liquitex basics: titanium white, cerulean blue, brilliant yellow green
- Liquitex professional: cadmium orange hue, phthalocyanine blue, brilliant blue, light blue
- Artists loft neon pink
- Golden artist colours: cadmium red light, manganese blue, carbon black
- Grumbacher Academy turquoise green
I started with a red base using Golden quinacridone magenta, cadmium red light, and Pebeo vivid pink and Naphthol carmine. I then added more layers and built up more layers with these colours as well as Golden cadmium yellow light and Liquitex professional cadmium orange.
