|cardboard covers the untouchables!|
The truth is, I am employing one little hint of pale yellow; naples yellow, which is very opaque. As an under-wash I'm hoping it will give warmth to the consecutive washes applied on top of it.
I cut out little squares of cardboard to cover the other colours( lots of yellow tones) on my palette so I dont forget and dip into them!...easy to do when I get into the groove with the process. The limited palette tones I've chosen for this project are: Scarlet Lake, Quinachridone Magenta, Cobalt Turquoise, Permanent Sap Green and Cobalt Blue. All are very transparent and make nice greys and taupes when mixed in various combinations. I'll add a touch of Burnt Umber as I near the end to pick out darks.
