Native American Indians
Pawnee BustStarted with the oils today over the top of the Jo Sonja base.
|With Jo Sonja acrylic basecoat roughly blended|
The oil mix is made from the same Jo Sonja colours used for the basecoat.
A master recipe of Venitian Red and Burnt Umber is added to Jaune Brilliant in icreasing quantities to create the mid 3 tones.
For the 3 highlights a base of Naples Yellow with a small amount of master recipe and Cadmium Red represents highlight 1 and is progressively darkened with the master recipe for highlights 2 and 3
The 3 shades all begin with the master recipe with a Cobalt Blue/White mix added for the greyed shade, Burnt Umber added for the warm shade and a Viridian Green/Mars Black mix added for the dark cool shade.

I keep these in an airtight container after a painting session to prolong their life.
Below is the first stage of oil painting. All of the colours were applied to the appropriate areas (aided by the pre-painting of the Jo Sonja's) and wet blended together. When dry some further wet on dry highlighting and shading will begin.
