Here’s the finished painting and a close-up, it ‘s taking me less and less time to finish them …

 Austerities - Autumn/Winter



              Here’s a progress photo:

              I had layed in a diluted wash of cobalt blue tone + translucent orange as a base tone for the skin. So these are the highlight areas. For the rest of the washes the colors are cobalt blue tone, translucent orange and deep red. Same for the background except there’s also pthalo blue and hookers green. The scene is mostly from imagination.



  The next one will be on a happier note, I promise.
