Can I ask how you find/create those colours?

I love to get questions. This painting occurred in 2 painting sessions. First day I painted a golden base color. When it was dry, I covered it with a mixture of black paint and alizarin crimson paint, By varying the mixture, and removing it in sections to allow the golden under-color to show, I arrived at this texture and image. It took the entire day to get it right.
That’s so interesting – I couldn’t work out how you got the impression of light breaking through. Such great textures. Really like the way you leave enough for the viewer’s imagination to mix with the painting.
wow, Maurice, this is SO POWERFUL. it’s all of your beautiful landscape light, plus a punch in the guts with that deep color. just luscious! Canvas? I thought surely this was a panel. is this all or mostly palette knife work? or brush and knife? other scraping tools?
Thanks Patrise, Yes, canvas and all of the above. It was painted in two sessions, first a ground of yellow, and when dry, over-painted with a mixture of black and alizarin crimson.
The foreground is palette knife. Final touches of Naples Yellow to make it shine. Thanks for looking and commenting !
