My goal through my painting today was to keep my colour as clean as I could, although I still like a vast range of greys which inadvertently could be called mud. It’s hard to know! I kept my palette to a minimum with 3 colours: cobalt, pure yellow and alizarin crimson with a touch of white gouache when needed.
I decided to eliminate the masking fluid on this occasion, as I find it leaves harsh edges, all of which need some softening later on. Anyway, every painting is a different exercise, so I have decided to be happy with today’s achievement and move on to the next.
