I started my third 3-color challenge painting for Myrna Wacknov's December challenge (I'm hoping to do one a week).
As a reminder, the 3 colors this time are:Hansa Yellow Deep + Pyrrol Orange + Phthalo Blue (Red Shade)
All are Daniel Smith colors.
I was going to use a mix of Lunar Black + the blue and orange for my blacks in this one but I think I can get dark enough with just the blue + orange this time.
This is the photo (taken by Jerry) of our pet, a little red-eyed tree frog we "adopted" from one of Jerry's past photography students who is now in medical school in Seattle.
And this is the beginning glaze of yellow I used. This is on a 1/8 sheet (7 1/2" x 11") of Arches 140# hotpress paper. I put some oxgall in my water tub to help the colors stay wetter and slide over the hotpress paper. You'll see the effects of that more when I start adding the blues to get the greens (with the colors I'm using, I won't get those bright greens but that's the luck of the draw).
