Well, Sr. Piasano is coming along nicely. I've been nervous about tackling him, but it turned out to be fun.
Sepia, Yellow Ochre and Burnt Sienna for the feather areas..
and a nice warm red for his eye area.
I've been stewing and wondering about colors for the cactus pads and finally decided to use my favorite triad of Pthalo Blue, Lemon Yellow and Rose Madder. I'm wondering if he needs green and red reflected up on his underside from the cactus pad and pear. We'll see.
So, this is as far as I've gotten this afternoon. It's frustrating to get in the groove and have to leave it for school tomorrow, but that's how it goes. So far, so good!
