Urban Landscapes are still intriguing me. This is a half sheet, worked over with gesso, charcoal and pastel pencil. I cant seem to get away from this tube of Liquitex Medium Magenta acrylic. It’s creeping into everything I paint lately!
It’s such a weird color, but does something to your brain, particularly on these industrial sort of subjects. Perhaps because it’s so out of character with the subject. Evening at the edge of a city, painted like a bunch of flowers.
Liquitex Medium Magenta acrylic – scary, addictive stuff!
The great thing about it is the fact that it is listed as having Excellent light fastness. Most watercolor pigments this color are fugitive.
The magenta creeping in everything is intoxicating in a good way. I just want to swim in it.
can’t seem to ween myself off that color.
its the perfect color. and the way you used it is wonderful. i love this painting too!
Thanks for your comment
Yeah, I cant stop using that color, it just does something to a painting.
