Marcia Hafif on RED PAINTING
"The Red Painting came out of the Oil Studies/Mass Tone, middle sized and larger, painted with powdered pigment hand-ground on a glass plate using a glass muller. During an uninterrupted time and using a small brush, 3/4", I applied the paint in my usual way: left to right and top to bottom. The colors were various reds: Paliogen Maroon, Permanent Red, Irgazine Ruby, Alizarin Crimson, but also Heliogen Blue and Indian Yellow."
