from a rough to reality

48x 60 oil on canvas

If you remember my old post
then this is the result.
Something I've learned about the palette I was using is that most
Cerulean Blues are just Thalo blue mixed with white. So then I went and looked on the back of a lot of paint brands and that is what it is, It's just some brands mix it with different whites. Gamblin paint has two Cerulean blues one is a hue the other is the real deal. I haven't tried the "real one" yet cause it's so freaky pricey. And don't know if there is a big difference. But that color has a full time job on my palette. It's warm for a blue and it's has a wide range for mixing. Thalo on the other hand just has a part time gig with me.

This was one of those paintings I could have just kept working on but I decided to just wrap it up and move on. I don't like when I can look at my own paintings and see it over worked.

Also a quick thank you to Colleen for posing for this piece. thank you!

This was the first 20 minute after gestures.
Ironically it was the best one I did today.
