Dynasty by cogwurx Dynasty by cogwurx
This is a reclaimed canvas...this used to be "Experiment in Gold". Now it is so much better, thanks in part to my wife's encouragement and critiques along the way. She really pushed me into a great direction

This is the first painting in a long time that I can actually say that I love.

Oil, gold leaf, and acrylic on Canvas.
20" x 28"

I can sort of hear the gold rectangle say, "Go ahead. Make my day." to the black column.

Deeply captivated by the red you're using, and struggling to get the same kind of depth myself.

Thank you!

If I remember correctly, lots of layers of Alizarin Crimson, with Dioxazine Purple for shading, and possible some Van Dyke Brown. It's been a while, but those are some of the colors that I use. I forget what I used for the underpainting.

Beautiful! Albeit a little evocative of a Poke-ball. Alas; stupid popular culture.

This is great! I tried mixed media painting one winter when it was too cold to work in my garage with mixed results. The colors of this painting would be great in my dining room

They were awesome in ours. I painted it for my dining room at my old home and it was perfect!

I'd be interested in seeing that painting.
