A Different Curtain - work in progress 2

here are the next three stages of A Different Curtain.

I've added the foliage here, behind the figures and have finished the bricks in the wall



In this one I have added the first pale green wash to the figures, made from a mix of ultramarine and transparent yellow. This is a base for the stronger colour to come.


and in this one, I have added the first wash of viridian, which will give the statue  a look of aged bronze.


The next picture you see will be the finished painting, because its just a matter now of adding another wash of viridian and touching up the shadows, where they need it. Oh, and deepening the pale red marble on which they sit. :)

Until tomorrow, then...

  6. Great to see the steps! Can't wait to see the end result.
    I am still thinking about how you did the shadows first, I'm going to try this approach myself, thanks!

  8. Glad you're all enjoying the process :)

    Michael , everything on this painting I have done before, from painting shadows first (My Captain) to the yellow ochre and pale brickwork (Beyond the Door)
    You can find them both on the blog search :) xx
