These photos show the applications of paint in the two stages. That center is looking quite neon but the photo is really showing that vibrancy and intensity of color. The colors in the rose are Quin. coral, Quin rose, Permanent Red, Fr. Ultramarine Blue, New Gamboge, Lemon Yellow, and Ultramarine Violet. The background has some of those same colors with the addition of Cerulean Blue, Yellow ochre, and Undersea Green. I'm looking forward to the morning so I can continue to work on this painting. This is being painted under fluorescent lighting so am curious to see how this will look in daylight and under incandescent light.
On a different note, I want to express my thanks to all of you that follow this blog. I don't often acknowledge how much I have appreciated your being there. There are so many of you wonderful artists sharing your blogs that I wish I had room on the sidebar for everyone. I keep finding more and more wonderful artwork to view via other artists' links and could spend hours just reading and looking.
