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.
