Background 41-46 - Six Works in Progress

As usual after painting with acrylics the remaining paint is applied onto stretch canvas panels as the under paint for future paintings. These are the various ones from Back Lit which was worked  on earlier this week (see post on 10 October 2015).

Background 41

The first one is predominately cadmium red, cadmium yellow with a little bit of titanium white.

Background 42

On the second one the colours are various mixtures of burnt sienna, alizarin crimson, cadmium yellow and titanium white.

Background 43

For the third one it is mainly burnt sienna, raw sienna, with a little cadmium yellow.

Background 44

This background has a base of raw sienna with streaks of alizarin crimson and cadmium red with s touch of French ultramarine blue.

Background 45

This one used most of the remaining French ultramarine blue, Cerulean blue and cobalt blue, burnt sienna and alizarin crimson. There is also a little bit of Titanium white in the top.

In a couple of places in the dark top area a few drops of water touched the paint on the canvas while it was still wet and could be used as "stars" in the sky.

Background 46

This final one is various blends of burnt sienna, Titanium white, Cerulean blue and French ultramarine blue.

I will post each of these backgrounds when they are used in future paintings.
