In the Pink

Acrylics on the back side of primed canvas, smallish 18"x24"

An experimental piece for a larger version. Tried completely unprimed canvas but it seemed to allow too much color to bleed through. The back side of primed canvas had nice rough texture and allowed some dispersion, but not too much. Thanks for viewing.
C&C very much welcomed on this. Planning something similar, but around 4'x6'

Very nice and I'm loving the hot pink so prominently displayed!

Re: In the Pink

I like it.

For the larger version, I would consider using less splashes of black paint (dotted black lines) as it seems to dominate the whole painting. One or two well-defined shapes might work well in there too.

When you do the larger version remember to leave some areas of the canvas less cluttered because it is nice to see some of that lovely turquoise peeping through.

Re: In the Pink

Great idea Katie. I put down the blacks after the viridian, but before anything else. I thinks the dots would be annoying on a large surface.
In the meantime, I tried another version (below) that has a whole lot more going on, but perhaps ends up demonstrating that less is more. Let me know what you think. Happy 2018!

Re: In the Pink

Thanks Kay! I always love the hot pinks, yet rarely get a chance to use them. Perhaps this will be an opportunity

Re: In the Pink

I looked at this for quite some time and my initial thought was that you have nailed it, pulled it off. Yes, it is busy, very busy, but somehow it works.

I tried to think how it might be improved upon and the only thing I can think of is that perhaps the 'white' would be better subdued.

Re: In the Pink

Thanks Katie. For the white, I used a high flow acrylic and got too much dispersal. Heavy body on the edge of a palette knife (and sparingly) should take care of that issue.
Thanks for the quick feedback. Canvas is on sale today and I'm heading to the store Working on a 3rd test piece that I'll post later.
