Brandon asked for a red & black painting using some elements of a "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin

The five color stages to complete this project:
First, a thin layer of yellow oxide (watered down) with a bit of burnt umber was spread and manipulated. 
Second, a layer of cadmium red with some burnt umber was spread across the entire project with some erasing (wiping away with a clean cloth).
Third, red acrylic paint was applied with a brush in various areas.
Fourth, and last, ivory black was spread across the entire surface and much was removed with a clean cloth.

I like your interpretation of this classic tune!

Our shadows taller than our soul..."
