8x8 Oil on Board Sold
I wanted to try a painting using a pinky/red ground rather than the transparent red oxide I usually use.I'm starting a larger painting that has lots of red/pink colors in the signs and reflections, so I wanted to see how it might look. I know that Jennifer McChristian uses a ground that shows pinky/red in her finished paintings. In one of her posts, she said that she uses Indian Yellow and or thalo red rose as an underpainting. I used an acrylic base of primary majenta (the only pinky red in my paint box). She is having a workshop as we speak (I mean type) and Carole Marine and Becky Joy are in attendance. Jennifer must be very good.
Does anyone out there use an underpainting or ground? What is your preference?
