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.
