Just with the oil, canvas and pigment-Rothko managed to create a stunning painting that can glow your living space. Rothko proved his alchemical prowess through excellent coloring.

This is the most worked area featuring excellent selections of subtle with indistinguishable passages of different colors- red, yellow, pinks, and umber.
The surface of this canvas is nothing short of spectacular. The edge and the ground surface interact well. The hue and contrast are perfectly mixed and lovingly maintained with well-blended textures.

The richness in color and excellent tensions on the surface are combinations of varieties that made this canvas a real season winner.

Rothko believes that the success of any painting work is to ensure clarity. The ability to ensure that there is clarity between the painter and the idea and the observer.
Rothko's achievement is through his oil painting techniques. Although many paintings use the same technique, Rothko's tonality of contrast and colors can leave a trace in everyone's imagination. He's creative in modifying properties to achieve the flow and the excellent colors that he needed. Apart from oil, he also uses traditional materials such as resins, glue, and eggs-which helps him with the fast-drying production of the canvas. He also applies the use of formaldehyde to prevent blending between layers.
