... that is, a painting of a big dog. The painting itself isn't that particularly large.
Today I painted the fringed throw draped over the back of the sofa. Trying to show its nubbly texture. I used mostly two of my favorite Old Holland reds: Alizarin Crimson Lake Extra and (are you ready for this?) Rose Dore Madder Lake Antique Extra. With a little magenta on the cool end and vermilion on the warm end, and in the shadows some black, bright violet and French ultramarine blue along with, yes, just a scoche of turquoise and Old Holland golden green just to keep things lively.
