argyroderma – underpainting continued…

So i managed to snatch a little time to paint yesterday afternoon whilst my son had a snooze, a little pressurised as i knew he would wake soon and my time would be up! I darkened the background and went in with various mixtures of thin magenta, alizarin crimson, a little cadmium red, pthalo blue, a little french ultramarine, viridian and indian yellow. It’s quite purply but i’m trying out the idea that i can make it pretty gaudy now because later i will glaze and refine and all that. Learning about the process and trying to be logical about the steps instead of surrendering to my natural impatience!
