Summer of color week 4
Colors are red + red + metallic.
These were tough colors to work with, but still a fun challenge.
I used true red, rose red and metallic gold acrylics.
I had a small problem, that the rose red was much more transparent than the true red, so when I blended, the true red took over.
Then to incorporate a 2nd red, I added black, which made it too dark of a red for what I wanted and the rose red wouldn't cover it.
It's difficult to photograph metallic in a painting. I had to get the sun to hit it just right without getting too much glare. A challenge in itself.
