The flesh colour was made with alizarin crimson, yellow ochre, and white. Today I added raw sienna and prussian blue extra (my favourite blue). I'll stop painting now, not because it's finished; there's an awful lot to resolve; but because I need to put in the background tones before deciding on the way forward.
If you spend a lot of time getting one part of a painting "correct", and don't put in the background at the same time, the eventual result can look unbalanced, and this often means extra work - going back over and altering what you were originally quite pleased with!!
It's going to take me quite a while to do this next bit, so please excuse me if all is a bit quiet here whilst I get cracking! It involves mega piecing over papers.
