A new piece underway
I first put an opaque vermillion - what an intense incredible color!!- onto the background, then put a darker alizaron crimson mixed with dioxinine purple over it. That created a wonderful glow with the red showing through but not quite. I didn't blend the top layer perfectly so there's a lot of movement in the background, making it more interesting.
OK, enough blabber - time for me to get back to it! I'll put up another picture at the end of the day today if there's progress worth showing.
In the meantime - it's back to the easel!
