Yesterday I got a new paint color and had to try it out. I was so excited to use it that I abandoned my normal method of painting in many layers over days and whipped out this painting. I’m actually really pleased with how it looks so far too. It could use some more paint, but my goal its to preserve some of the looseness in the finished piece.
It might be a silly, but I haven’t added to my collection of oil colors, aside from a tube of black, since I first learned to paint. Yesterday I had to rare opportunity to go to a brick and mortar art/craft store so I picked out a new color. I chose a Permanent Red. It’s a warmer red than alizarin crimson and someone suggested I try using warm and cool reds to help me paint my red rocks. I’m a fan.
