I’ve decided to do this one as another step-by-step process painting. I’m using a dark green colored ground again for this painting but it could have been another color to set a different ambient light tone. If you look carefully at the contour drawing below you will see I’ve used a bit of colored pencil to help me choose the colors I’ll put down in each area.

The drawing for these small paintings is never intended as a finished work by itself, if it were I wouldn’t want to go on and finish the painting but rather leave the drawing for you to enjoy.

I don’t usually use black but have recently been mixing my dark shadow color using phthalocyanine green, dioxazine purple and naphtol red. While the digital image doesn’t show the true saturation of the colors, the scanned images are close enough to get a good idea of what’s happening in the work. If anyone has questions, I’ll be glad to try to answer them.
