A spotlight on this work, makes the work doubly intense and warm. The pigment lights up.
After building up the underlayers with acids, among other things, I finished the work with Red iron oxide (Fe2O3, an inorganic compound) mixed with yellow iron oxide to create some contrast..
Although I have placed this work under the colored works it officially belongs to the earth tones.
[Weathering of the very old rocks of the subsoil and what then remains of the rock after weathering is often what is called a laterite bedrock. This contains a lot of oxidized iron, or rust, hence the color. The natural mineral consists of silicon and clay, but owes its color to the said iron oxide.]
