Trina: Day Two. It's In The Hands.

     Today, we’ll go slowly with this step.  I tackle my first washes in the hands.  I’ve already titled the painting “Light Hand”, and Trina’s hands are the focal point of the piece.  I want to really spend some time here, since they are so integral to the painting.
     I also add some Burnt Sienna to her hair.  The hands are a mix of Burnt Sienna and Alizarin Crimson.  I lean a bit to the Sienna side.
     Take your time and concentrate on this important phase of the painting.  We’ll accomplish more tomorrow.
