Interesting Beginnings

"Curly"  Mixed media on watercolor paper 20 x 16 inches
                                              Available at MarySchiros.artspan.com

   I love making interesting under paintings to work from.  Sometimes those under paintings are pure experiments in color combination.

I started this one with experiments in mixing oranges and blues, then roughed in with white acrylic the mass of the sheep, I wanted to  work up.  From there I worked back and forth with acrylics, inks and charcoal.
   Just thought it would be fun to share the process of how "Curly" was painted.
Thanks for looking
