Trina: Day 7. Creating Definition.

     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.
