Color – What fun! Slathering Prussian and Cobalt Teal blues paints across the rough textured cotton canvas.
Acrylic Colors Used
Prussian Blue, Indanthrone Blue, Cobalt Teal Blue, Light Red, Naples Yellow, White
I used Golden, Matisse and Winsor and Newton acrylics.
The Indanthrone Blue was by Golden. This is a magnificent rich blue of great depth. A wonderful subtle hint, of violet in it. I adore this color.
Complementary Light Red adds just a touch of warmth to give the design a better balance; it is not too cold.
Brush and Knife
I used a my magic palette knife for most of the painting. Fingers for smudging and a plain flat nylon brush in a couple of places.
Purpose of the exercise
The goal of the painting exercise was to simply create a cool dominant image offset with its complement. To create an acrylic Abstract with blue greens.
Looking at the image, it is open to individual interpretation.
Whereas I may see the white on the right side as a waterfall cascading down the side of a layered escarpment; another may see a different interpretation altogether!
