Prime(ary) Colors

Here is a landscape that owes its glow to a good prime coat of cad red. Once dry I then applied a thin coat of violet and blue/violet to the sky, followed by top clouds of unbleached titanium and parchment. I allowed the red prime to peak thru the foreground greens and added some bits more as top dressing. I really liked the effect, like a warm summer evening.
The painting is 8x10 on canvas. Price on Requet.
