More of the same with dry glazing

Still playing with dry glazing. Last night's glazes dried easily in less than a day. I'm really having a fun time with this piece. It's such a different direction and it feels great to simply poke around exploring.



I'm experimenting with trying to pull a look of blue from vine black adjacent to ercolano red. Lighter tones seem to work best.

  1. It is interesting to see the grey/vine black + ercolano red cherckerboard sample in today's post. At first glance, much like viewing an Impressionist painting, my eye automatically combines the two colors and reads this as violet- but if I cover over either of the two colors, they read as red or grey.
    This little piece continues to be a valuable learning experience/experiment on many levels!

  3. I'd like to try this impressionistic effect when I pick up the pastels in my upcoming course. "The Art of Pastel Painting" by Alan Flattmann is going to be my reference for that.

    And a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year to you, Gretchen!
