Abstract – Mask

For today’s study I mixed a solution of quinacridone burnt orange and another of turquoise. I find it much easier to have a lot of liquid pigment at my disposal, especially for washes.

However, I began by painting narrow traces of burnt orange (without plan). I abutted fields of turquoise against the orange for maximal contrast.

I finished up with a deep cerulean blue and dark neutral tint outlines of the burnt orange tracings
