Graduation of the Alchemists. Oil on 18X24 Canvas, WIP.
A study for another work. This study is about composition on this scale, along with artistic rendering of the location. (one internet point to the person who guesses the source locale).
Dragon Surprised in Cave, oil on board, 5x7.
did a paint out of my different oranges and wanted to use the paint nuts up the yellow is Cobalt Yellow, the background is raw umber. Oranges don't convey well on camera..... I thought Cobalt Yellow had the perfect shade and besides, it is not a safe pigment. So it artistically links well with dragon gold.
A quick sketch I made comparing strontium titaniate and titanium dioxide as mixing whites in oil. The lighting is weird, unfortunately.
But thought it might be of mild interest.
Cad yellow medium, pthalo blue (red shade, I think), and pyrrole red.
My grandfather gave this ring to me many years ago, before I was of a size to wear it.
I have a notion it was bought from one of the roadside jewelry stands that are common in AZ. Does anyone have any ideas about it? I.e. symbology etc?
