Different Color Palette


By the Light of the Moon, acrylic on canvas, 8 x 16
Elizabeth W. Seaver
sold


I love the quinacridone colors and found one from Golden that I hadn't seen before.  So, of course, I had to order it--quinacridone red light.  It makes a beautiful purple when mixed with cobalt blue and nice orange with cad yellow and y ochre.  By the Light of the Moon is the result.  I'll be playing with it again.

I cleared out space in my studio this morning for the delivery of the panel which is made of mdf over a thin sheet of plywood.  It has a layer of outdoor acrylic primer on it already, so as soon as I've finished a few more paintings for my show, I'll get started on the collage!

Thanks, everyone for your kind congratulations on my last post.  Your support means a lot.

More later.  Gotta get back to work.

Hi, Everyone: Thanks for the nice words. It's always fun to find a new color and see how it combines with your existing palette. I will be trying this one again.

I like this painting and orange umbrella, simple but rather haunting.I will have to experiment with some of those quinicuidrone colors.

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Hey, Paula. Yes, I find them to be really brilliant, and I do love the strong jewel tones! Thanks for stopping by.

I love the quinacridone colors also. Haven't tried the Quin red-light....must try. Gorgeous!

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Hi, Ariel. I don't know whether it is available in watercolor. The only company I've seen make it is Golden in acrylics. Thanks for visiting me!
