This original oil painting is 9.75” x 7.5” with a 0.75” white border surrounding. Crafted on Arches Oil Paper, it was created out of my interest in color theory and creating color studies in preparation for larger paintings. This work explores an integrated palette with Alizarin Crimson. This cool red has always been included on my palette but only very rarely takes the forefront in my paintings. I primarily use it for creating subtle shifts in hue when mixing other colors, or to create earthy violets and magentas. This color originally came from the Madder plant, native to Asia and Southern Europe.
