Paintcation: Fit The Sixth


I am on the sixth day of what Julie Torres calls a "paintcation"  Tomorrow, I will take it easy, more or less.  Monday back to work,

Previously:  >> Fit the First  >>Fit the Second   >>Fit the Third   >>Fit the Fourth   >>Fit the Fifth

I completed two paintings today, one 18"w X 24"h, that was very complex, because it had xerox transfer on top of acrylic skin transfer, and the number of lines and rhythms got very involved.

I think I finally figured out how to make it work.

The second, a larger one, 30"h X 24"w, I toned it over all with an Indian yellow hue glaze, then worked it in a pretty painterly way with cadmium red, titanium white and ultramarine blue.  Have to say that I like the M.       
Graham acrylic tube colors a lot.  (I used their Indian Yellow Hue, Ultramarine Blue, and Cadmium Red).

I asked Art Graham, when he was in Santa Cruz, if they'd consider making fluid colors.  The handling is great 
as a tube color, but my way of working, I usually add a few drops of airbrush medium to it.

By the way the colors are kickass, I can't get them as intense here, but this should give you some idea.
