Pulled out the brushes again….I originally intended this to be another soft bodied acrylic piece. The under painting is a mottled, speckled layer of rolled on acrylic, which is why the whole painting looks speckled. I was originally going to use soft bodied acrylics to paint this but instead I used casein. It was an experiment, next time I will try something different for the under painting.
Also, I limited my color palette to white, black, ultramarine blue, rose red, yellow ochre and burnt umber.
