Shaken Not Stirred 6x6 oil on board
I'm still having fun with colors, reflection and
the distortions created by liquid in colored glass.
I tried something with this painting that I've never done
before. My friend, Abbey Ryan, suggested I try
painting on a palette the same color as I toned my canvas.
That's right quinacridone red!
I usually work on a mid tone palette so I can easily tell
what value the color I mix is, on the light side or the dark side.
Sometimes I work on a white paper palette which is
super easy clean up, especially outdoors.
But a hot pink palette?
It was crazy confusing for me at first but I really
started getting into it and want to experiment with this some more.
I did this by painting paper the same color as I toned the canvas
and placed it on the mixing area of my canvas.
Then I put a piece of glass on top and proceed as usual,
well almost as usual.
