Just a small oil painting for this week. I painted the canvas with a thinned cadmium red and allowed some of it to show through. It's a warmer and more subtle red than I've used recently to prime other canvases. I think I like it better than the bright red for a scene such as this one. Also, by using it thinned rather than as an opaque red, the white of the canvas is able to glow through it.
I work in just about every art medium I can get my hands on with my favorites being watercolor and silk painting. I love to experiment with different mediums and styles of painting. I try to paint every day and will post my paintings here as I finish them. I really appreciate any comments you may have on the paintings.
