Ingredients of Yellow Webs

Here's another brand-new painting (acrylic on canvas, 50 inches high by 30 inches wide).

Everyone has her favorite brands, types and color combinations of paint. Mine is the mixture I use as my top layer to get this greenish brownish goldish appearance: Golden fluid acrylics in nickel azo yellow mixed with raw umber and lots of Utrecht-brand gel medium. That's my personal language.

Funny... the exact colors I was working with this morning... and still have all over my hands...

That's cool, Karen!

Isn't nickel azo yellow the BEST? I love its sunny quality, and the umber can tone it down just enough without killing the buzz.

Don't even get me started on phthalo blue (green shade)!
