Experiments With the Color Red
You may not actually see it right off but the paintings below were all made with red underpaintings. Some artists paint exclusively with a red background because it goes so well with the greens and blues of a landscape. When it shows through in little cracks here and there it blazes. Where the paint is thin the red glows through, giving the piece a unified look. These paintings are my foray into the red underpainting technique.
I made sure to leave a lot of red showing in some of the works to emphasize the red color of the underpainting.
