It’s starting to float between appearing cloudy or watery after the last two layers. Still not dark enough, so there will probably be at least two more layers, or maybe even three. This photo shows the two layers I brushed on today, the first one being plain old yellow and plain old purple–not necessarily blended together but just sharing the same canvas. The second layer was a mix of mars red and phthalo green. Mars red is kind of brick-colored, and phthalo green is a bright green that trends toward blue. Mixed together they give a nice rich deep green. When this new green was applied in a transparent layer it took on either a blue cast or a green cast depending on what was underneath it. The in-house art critic suggested I take a photo including our orange tabby cat. Could have been a FaceBook page game of “find the cat”. I respectfully declined.
Charm, showing off the only braids that will stay in her endless mane.
