This is the third layer of this painting. This was painted Monday (3/28/16) morning, right before work. I’d not planned enough time to use this color blend on “November Rain” as well, as I’d intended. I barely had enough time to work on this. I find that it helps me if I can work on some bit of the art every day. Not only is it relaxing, it gives me something to look forward to. Each layer takes several hours to dry, so working on it in the morning and evening is a good use of time.
I added a blend of paint using these colors – manganese blue, deep violet, and phthalocyanine blue. I used my standard way of blending paint right from the palette. The colors aren’t quite this bright in reality.
