The Right Red
I put 3 layers of red before I liked the result. Quin Magenta, which is a beautiful red, Napthol Red light to warm it up and then a mixture of the Naphtol red and cad yellow light, glazed on to brighten it up. I wish I could have saved more of the quin magenta spots but I could not 'recreate' them by mixing white into the quin magenta. That produced a sort of light purple.
Question of the day that I have been mulling over. How true to stay to the original images? I'd like to remove the Very Very Christian iconography in some of the images. I feel it limits the audience and also does not represent who I am. Thoughts?
Mai-Liis says the paintings are funny to her. Are they funny to you?
