Eskimo nebula painting 08122012 – work in progress

Been doing a lot of work on this painting, building it up slowly, layer by layer. Very slow process. I’ve been trying to stick to the translucent colours indian yellow, alizarine crimson and ultramarine. I found that I have to add a little titanium white sometimes to add a bit of ‘body’ or to lighted the pigment. This process tends to ‘cool’ the colours. I’ve occasionally been using a little bit of lamp black paint but this doesn’t yield a ‘true’ black. Mixing the primaries usually gives a better result. Lamp black tends to be a ‘warm’ black.
