5th Lesson - Working Your Way Down The Canvas
The colour of the background is proving a little tricky. We want it a goldy-green yet soft and muted at the same time. We are using Cobalt, Permanent Rose, Cadmium Yellow Deep and Australian Red Gold to achieve this. Do small sections at a time starting from the top, right across the canvas so you can steadily proceed down - remember as we proceed forward we will need more contrast, colour and harder edges, but slowly does it - we have a long way to go before we hit the bottom!
