This is a limited palette painting, using Transparent Oxide Brown, Transparent Oxide Red and Cad. Yellow Deep. These last two mix really scrumptious shades of orange. I used a tiny amount of black, mainly for his pupils and nostrils.
This was one of those paintings where I had a bit of trouble establishing my tonal values. I think it would have been easier to work if I had toned the support first, perhaps a thin wash of burnt sienna.
That's all for this week. Have a great weekend and thank you for looking at my paintings.
