This is an example of a type of painting I love to complete. I started by painting the entire canvas black. It was the first time I tried this method. It worked pretty well but I will have to wait for the painting to dry so I can varnish the finished canvas so the blacks will even out. Right now there are hot and dry spots in the black. I mix my black with Ultramarine blue and Burnt Umber. This photo needs color correction the face has more red in the cheek area. Well I wanted to share the finished painting today.
