cleaning the studio...

...and other adventures in art

I readily admit I’m a pushover for color.

This pink hasn’t been seen in these pieces so far. It’s Dianthus Pink from R&F Paints. I already regularly use it in oil-paint-stick form, but I just bought the encaustic paint version for the first time.

As you can see, it’s shockingly pink in its pure form.

In The Daily Bird, Day 38, I layered it with purple and red against a neutral background, and it’s not so shocking. I don’t know if it will play well with the other 49 pieces, though.

I think I’ll be using it in the next few days so that there are enough pink pieces to bully the rest of the colors into submission. Or maybe there will be some gentle persuasion involved, since no one likes a bully.
