15 Minute Sunrise # 107
Hi all, This morning I had some new colours to play with....HOC H212 Scarlet Lake and Williamsburg (handmade...proof by the price)Fanchon Red or Rouge Vermillonn`e. I have two problems the sun and a pot of geraniums...need I say more!
I like both of these colours, because of the pigment saturation. The Scarlet Lake in this instance was more useful....still trying to get the hot coral colour I'm really after! I think it will probably come from using copal glazes. I used 1/2" and #8 Royal soft grip SG4020 Filbert...short handle, which gives the 8x10 study a different softer look. It was partly cloudy with a blue grey colouring. The mid-ground field is almost always a pop-out feature. The nice thing about this view....I can either have trees or not, simply by moving around the garden.
I used a cadmium yellow deep toned panel....I think it was a mistake!
