You said, "I love how the warm under painting makes the colors sing!"I agree completely, Mary! It energizes and brings harmony!
Thank you, Dean! I have been using acrylic wash in burnt sienna to establish a value study under several of my recent pieces. However, this one was an exercise in Carol Marine's workshop that was burnt umber oil paint. The lights were rubbed out and darks were applied over a medium value wash. I like that the acrylic is not disturbed by the application of the oils and will not tinge the colors.
both soft and rough, and I like the lines that lead to the subject. Nice work.
Thank you, Roger! My concern was to lead the eye as well as add interest. I hoped that it would not be too much of a distraction.
Sometimes the simplest compositions are the most powerful. This is just wonderful!
Thank you, Ann...I think you are right!
