Shadows and Saturation


8"x 10"
acrylic on masonite
One of the fun things about the current image from Karin Jurick's DSFDF challenge, was all of the red I found in the figures after enhancing the saturation in photoshop. Playing with the saturation and hue in photoshop has helped me to look for and see color where I hadn't before and as helped me to expand my color usage in my painting.
For this painting I used: ultra marine blue, cobalt blue, yellow ocre, hansa yellow, cad red lt, napthol red lt, and raw umber and titanium white. Oh, and a litte green gold!

I agree - this is a superb version of the challenge. Very accurate drawing under wonderfully lose brush strokes.

Love it...
Love how you've made it your own, too. Not only through the colors but also I think you reversed the image didn't you?
I was so taken by the image that Karin posted that I vowed that I would paint it... but got busy and didn't. So I decided to try to paint a similar one. It's such an interesting perspective isn't it?? Alas, my local mall doesn't have that skylight which highlights the whole thing.
GREAT way to meet the challenge!
