I've almost finished a new one. Love the Reds! Added a transparent oxide red to my limited palette - makes for much richer darks with the phthalo blue...
Try it - Permanent Red, Cad Yellow Light, Phthalo Blue, Transparent Oxide Red and a white of your choice. It really helps to premix secondaries and the key colors of your subject. I also mix a yellow ochre, cad yellow deep, browns and a "black" etc...
For this painting I did add a cadmium scarlet - when it's posted in a few days you'll see why -

Though I have been admittedly negligent in my blog postings I have been working really hard! I've been painting and drawing and designing for some new projects that will be announced in the future.
One thing I have been doing is posting Process Pics regularly to Instagram. I've included a few in this post, but I highly recommend checking it out. My Instagram user name is "Elizapainter" - (my middle name being Elizabeth.) This is not about finished paintings, but about tools and sketches and studies and ideas and - well, chronicling process... On an almost daily basis.
I've also been working out how to post from my iPad - I'm not at my computer too often but need to stay connected - obviously. Think I got it - by George. Well - will see...
Been writing a lot too and some of those rumination a will be showing up in the future.
Thank you for reading.
