The main thing I wanted to accomplish with this painting it to get a golden glow from the paper. I want it to feel as if the light is bouncing off the paper and glowing.
Thanks to lots of color study and the Munsell system I feel I was able to accomplish that well. But I’m sure to improve the technique with further paintings.
I will say that there is a lot of subtlety in this painting that is lost in the photo.
