Painting on Location

Picturatranslucida Pigments
Transparent Pigments


When painting on shiny metal support,
a clear area is usually the area seen as dark.

Painting with dark opaque colors is sometimes done
in the anchor area of an image as on picturatranslucida.htm"

In a reflection zone white does not necessarily appear white
this must be accounted for as on page picturatranslucida.htm.

Here are the same 20 colors on silver.

Each color will be photographed with a transparent highlight and no highlight

azo burnt orange, 20ml incredibly transparent, this deep orange is similar to cadmium orange deep. Amazing in glazes, no photo.
Old Holland's synthitic Indian Yellow without a bright reflection and with a reflection off the silver support.
Thalo Green photos without a light reflection and with.
Notice how the area with white on the right side looks dark when there is a reflection of light in the area. That's very tricky to work with. You see the darks stay dark.
