Today I fine-tuned the red floating shapes on the left side of the mandala. On the first layer I used naphtol red; for this layer I used quinacridone red which is a little bit brighter with more blue in it. That and dioxazine purple are the only two colors I used.
HEADS UP: I’ll be at the Corvallis Art Guild Clothesline Art Sale all day tomorrow (day 49). The plan is to have this painting on display at the sale. If I do, I’ll provide a photo. Day 50 I’ll be back to painting it again.
Here’s a close up of one of the red floaty things I painted today.
This photo shows the four red shapes that I fine-tuned today.
And the full view. If you look closely you’ll see the four red shapdes on the right appear much flatter than the four shapes on the left. Before I paint the right side red shapes, I’ll be sure to take a before close-up photo so you can see better the difference.
