I’m digging through my paints to find REDS. The demo this week is covering this dynamic hue. A primary hue that packs an emotional and psychological punch in the palette. It is also the foundation for most if not all flesh tones and in keeping with our recent holiday, it is of the good ‘ol RED, WHITE AND BLUE patriotic chord of colors.
Rose madder, alizarin, cadmium, rose, napthol, and red ocre are a few reds we will talk about. And the mixing demo will be on matching browns. Buy a brown bosc pear if you think you might like to follow up in class and practice with a small study on mixing reds to browns.
As always, this blog has demo’s on the so cleverly named DEMO page; one is on painting pears in acrylics.
See you on Wednesday July students.
