There’s a fair amount going on in the shadows in the painting, and I am only just getting into to it. It was good to lay in some shadow washes and start to build out of of the structure and distance. I have kept with a limited palette of Cobalt Blue, Nickel Azo Yellow, Quinacridone Pyrrolidine Red (sennelier permanent alizarin crimson deep) and Viridian. It’s a nice quartet to work with. I have been using the crimson as a base for all my earth tones now. It’s a versatile pigment. Still tinkering with my overall palette choices.
In painting this I am wishing there were more opportunities for some more expressive brush strokes. I might need to start another one to balance things out.
Thanks for reading.
