Brown Study (2)

Last week, my Brown Study was painted in Transparent Oxide Brown and Warm White; this week, I wanted to achieve more of a sepia feel to this second monochrome study, so I added Cadmium Yellow Deep. An extra colour on the palette had the effect of warming everything up; it also gave me a surprising range of additional shades and tones to play with, which helped with differentiating the dog from the background.
