This is a color-value study in development where only 2 values will be used in the colors, from the photo above. Oil on canvas, 6 1/2" X 7", so far I have used a #2 flat and a worn #2 round(=1 1/2 or so). This is a wash block in, indicating where my darkest darks are all located, 4 oil colors were mixed and used. I did this last night but not dry enough this morning to apply a second wash to indicate color in the composition, so have to wait. In the meantime I have a portrait to get back to. (BTW the photo in my studio looks far superior in quality to work from). Thanks for looking.
