magenta & gold



2 postcard sized pieces on watercolour paper c.10 x 15cm




& 3 pieces c. A4 sized (32 x25cm)
from a group of 11 works on paper in gold and magenta oil with cold wax medium just completed.
An experiment included in the process this time of painting a layer of crimson house paint ( matt emulsion) above the gesso priming layer and below the first layer of magenta oil and wax. I am pleased with the result that the scraped lines have a more solid red effect than if they scraped right through to the paper because the emulsion is so opaque and has such dense coverage
