Morning Light - A New Small Acrylic Painting


Morning Light

As the sun rises and sets, the shadows, colors and lines of this precipice change constantly. I find it very interesting because of the way it juts out against a background that includes the Rio Grande, the Sandia Mountains and the city of Albuquerque.  It is full of life with coyotes and prairie dogs, and all kinds of birds circling the area.   This is an acrylic painting on Gessobord, which measures 6 x 6 inches. Gessobord is a gessoed wood panel made by Ampersand that is 1/8 inch thick. It is archival, non-yellowing and acid-free. The painting is signed on the front [...]

Color Chart 2 - Cadmium Yellow Medium Mixtures


Color Chart using Cadmium Yellow Medium

I am slowly progressing on creating color charts using the main colors from my painting palette. I use Liquitex heavy body acrylic paints. This chart shows mixtures of Cadmium Yellow Medium mixed with the remaining colors along the top row. The vertical rows show the same mixtures with varying amounts of Titanium White added to tint the colors. It's incredible how many colors can be made using just a few. My next chart will be mixtures with Yellow Light Hansa.    Cadmium Yellow Medium is mixed with:   Yellow Light Hansa Cadmium Red Light Cadmium Red Medium Quinacridone Magenta Phthalo Blue (green shade) Ultramarine Blue (red shade) Dioxinine Purple Yellow Oxide Burnt Sienna Burnt [...]
