Alvaro Castagnet's recent work!

If you check out Castagnet's facebook page here:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Alvar...4101935?ref=ts

he posts recent and older work. The most recent piece, of Venice, was painted with just Burnt sienna and Blue (he doesn't specify which ones, and from some youtube videos, I'd say 'don't get him started', lol)

Re: Alvaro Castagnet's recent work!

Thank you, Sandra. Burnt sienna works well with most blues. I've done ultra+bs, cobalt+bs, cerulean+bs and turquoise+bs, they all work well but the choice of blue determines how dark you can go.

Re: Alvaro Castagnet's recent work!

You can do some great paintings with this palette!

I found that my Holbein Burnt Sienna was a bit too yellow -- led to some greenish greys. I am gradually replacing burnt sienna with Indian Red in my palettes. I LOVE INDIAN RED>

Re: Alvaro Castagnet's recent work!

I dont think it is Venice, it is the stands of the soccer stadium where his favorite Uruguayan team, Peñarol, plays. The people in the stand light flares which is the bright sienna, and the smoke is the yellowish sienna and the people and stands are in bluish.

Re: Alvaro Castagnet's recent work!

It looks like he's placed another piece or two up on his site. This is the one I was referring to:
