Well, we’re now winding things down nicely. Now’s the time when I ditch my photo and add darks and definitions throughout the painting. Little indications with Sepia create definition in the saddle. I also place one more medium wash of Cobalt Blue and a touch of Alizarin Crimson on Trina’s shirt.
I also place another warm wash of Cadmium Red on Trina’s hands. My thoughts now turn to warming the background up a bit. With her blue shirt, a complimentary warm earth tone should make the painting sing.
