'Applesolute !' 6x6 in oil on canvas panel
Still playing with apples and having fun. I used Lemon Yellow (transparent) for mixing green yesterday. And I used Cadmium Yellow (opaque) to make greens today - just to see how transparent colors and opaque colors act differently. Now I can see difference between them.
My conclusion? In my opinion, transparent yellow makes very thin paints which is hard to deal with (it's slimy) but leaves interesting marks/effects when used right. Opaque yellow makes thicker paints which is easier to apply on canvas and leaves smoother marks. I don't think this is a perfect conclusion about these paints. It's just what I felt today.
