Second Stage of Pharaoh Dogs

May 22nd, 2014

Naturally I have also been painting on the large Pharaoh dog painting. But nothing is completed yet, not even the background. I’m using a very limited palette for this one: Titanium White, French Ultramarine, Indigo, Cadmium Red light, Cadmium Yellow Light and Cadmium orange. I will continue with the painting tomorrow and block in the rest of the dogs. The paint is drying slow, since I use Walnut Oil.. but that is exactly what I want. The painting is much lighter than it looks on the photos.
