The paintings of Oklahoma artist, Ann Buckner Krug
Monday, March 12, 2012
I've been working on this daffodil painting using analogous colors as the color scheme. Azo and New Gamboge for yellow, perinone orange, perm. red and perm. alizarin crimson, then added in Cobalt and Phthalo Blue as the complement used for graying the yellow and red mixes, and for mixing greens.
I've been finding it difficult to get good form in this painting so there has been a lot of lifting and repainting. My goal was not to go too dark on the shadow side of the daffs but haven't achieved the right values to create depth within the daffs. Thanks to Pat at paintingfriends.com for the reference photo.
