Painting candle (light) in acrylics.
I surfed looking for some demos on how to paint candle in dark. The only one I have found is one demo on youtube in which the artist doesn't even mention which colors he mixed. It seemed more like he wanted others to buy his DVD.
Anyway, does anyone have suggestions on how to go about painting candle? I've a canvas that I painted with black Gesso and now I need the courage to start painting a candle with fire and the beautiful light. No others objects nearby. I lighted up a candle last night and just started at it for a long time, but somehow I don't know how to go about it.
Any pointers are appreciated. For example shall I start with a mixture of crimson and cad yellow to paint the light around?
