Painting: Alizarin Yuck 2

Alizarin Yuck 2, acrylic on 11″ x 14″ canvas, October 22, 2012

There it is, the finished painting.  Here are the last few in-progress shots I hadn’t posted until now:

Added some black over the alizarin yuck. More than I intended to…

And the promised square!

It’s pretty much just an exploration into washes, drips, and palette knifed on paint.  But it was fun!  🙂

  1. The square found it’s home! Nice one Charlie …no “yuck” though!

  2. I’m really liking these textured squares.

  3. I have to say, Zorgor, that you really have a clear style and method with your paintings. There is nothing yucky about this piece, in fact it’s one of my new favorites! Those perfectly formed gold circles and dots make this piece pop! It almost looks like it’s been studded with metal. It’s beautiful, and you did such a nice job with it. Excellent work! 🙂

    • Thank you so much! Yes, nothing yucky anymore. 🙂 All I can say is that shade looked really awful on the palette… I’m glad you like the gold dots. After they were on, I was thinking it looked better before them. You can thank gravity for the gold dots being perfectly formed. 🙂 I’m glad you like this one!

  4. I don’t know why…but all i could think of when seeing this painting was chocolate…maybe it’s the warm gold dots…and how the added black actually makes it look like a very dark and rich chocolate…
