I absolutely love the Naphthol Red Light and so I've started with that. Next I'm scrubbing in some Indian Yellowy Hue and I now have to let that dry while I look at it and think. I am wanting some green. I think about mixing some green from Ultramarine Blue and Dairylide Yellow or should I use the Green Gold Yellow.
I've posted a few close ups of Lorene's painting and they appear as most recent on my blog. To see the photo of the painting, scroll down past the 2 photos of reeds and you will see it. Does it look finished to you? My daughter Amanda said that it was finished, what do you think?

This is my latest piece and I painted it for Lorene but she hasn't seen it yet. I wonder what her response to it will be. My daughter Amanda loves this piece and she is often my first critic and never afraid to be brutally honest which I always appreciate. We had friends out for supper on Saturday and everyone who saw it, also liked it. It actually looks better up close because there is a lot of texture which is not seen on the computer. The size is 3'x5' and is painted on wide edge canvas.
This is a painting that I started Friday night. I prepped the canvas with moulding paste by laying out the design making sure there is movement and texture and then I allow it to dry over night. The next day, I start to lay on the color and this takes some thinking and deciding what colors and where to put them and probably the longest process to me, because I tend to think a lot about it. This is as far as I managed to get because I ended up spending a few hours in the kitchen cooking and making bread and cheese buns. I will work on it and post all my next efforts later this week.
