Step 3 - Building up the darks
Got up early this morning to take advantage of the sunshine and natural light to work on this painting. At this point I am working on establishing the dark areas that I will need to make the little sunny patches in the painting sparkle. Decided to use a limited palette of prussian blue, alizarin crimson and cadmium lemon. I am loving the subtle greens that are coming from this palette, and know that that using the limited palette will add to the unity of the piece.
