Painting Supplement #8: Sanguine


Sanguine-tinged still life.


Composed and measured line drawing. I use a view-finder to zoom in.


I pick a tube color called Terra Rosa. It has warm and cool properties; it cools dramatically when mixed with white/gray/black.  Here we see the usual tints, tones and shades top row. Bottom row I mix a little more white with each.

cp2sang1 Blocking in the shades and background first.


I’ll leave it here. I utilize a rubber brush for a sgraffito (scratching in) technique to recover highlights and texture.
