I had only enough time today to paint this one 5 x 7 rectangle. Right now I am only using 3 colors: white, ultramarine and burnt sienna. The white and sienna are heavy open acrylics but the blue is an acrylic ink. I am trying to leave the tone of the under layer showing through but I am having to make corrections along the way which results in covering up. I am not drawing the image before painting but just massing in the shapes with light value and dark value while leaving the paper as the mid value. I am going to leave the white alone for now. When all nine sections are complete, I will evaluate the overall effect and possibly glaze much of the white. So far I am pleased with the effect.
Traveling again over the weekend but then back at work on Tuesday.
