Rick Berg brought in a painting that he had done with reds and oranges and variations of both. He had the class mix all their colours one at a time with Alizarin Crimson on a board or paper to see all the relationships and variety. It was quite eye opening. Rick did a short demo based on the finished painting and then we did our versions. Of course in a 3 hour time frame, most did not get theirs completed (mine included). Finally finished my version today. I have never used Alizarin Crimson with so many colours before!
Below is Rick's under painting and then his original framed painting. It is quite a large painting and will be for sale at the 2014 Calgary Stampede.
