White Hawk III, Initial Stage
Today I traced White Hawk's face onto the paper and then wet areas, dropping in lemon yellow, indian red, more viridian and quin. burnt orange. Indian Red is an opaque paint so it was watered down a lot before placing it on the left side of his face and painting over some of the yellow on the right side. More viridian and quin. violet was also added to the muddy area on the left cheek. The empty space for the eyes looks rather spooky doesn't it. Will this experiment work out? I won't know until more work is done but it sure has been fun dropping in color to see what happens.
