Found a figurative pose that just ask to be painted. I have done two studies so far, and plan more.
For one I used Alizarin Yellow and Manganese violet, one of my favorite color combinations. The Alizarin yellow makes a very intense warm glow.
The next painting the main colors are emerald green, caput mortuum (violet-brown), brilliant yellow and magenta, which surprising created a cool blueish color palette. Also with this painting I turned my photo reference up-side down and actually painted the entire painting up-side down. I did that to stop myself from painting what I "thought" should be there, and just paint the lights and shadows as just that; lights and shadows.
