Sunrise 11X14 Oil on Ampersand Gesso Board $150
Day 16 of the 30 day challenge
Here we are with the color red. I swear I need to take a photography course just so I can learn how to photograph red and turquoise. I have yet to do that successfully.
I am playing with the combinations of mediums and oil and layering them. On this one I wanted to have the initial image show through yet have the glow of the light. I felt that a lot of medium would give me this result. I also actually used Cadmium Orange. I have had this one tube of Cad Orange for years and rarely use it. Mixing red and yellow together usually gets me what I want. I used both Nuptial Red and Quin Red.
Its pretty strong. I agree. So is the Sun.
