Back to Front
After brushing in the background the way I want it, I start moving forward, blocking in the shadows under the fireweed and putting the base colors on the kuspuks the bears are wearing. I'm using acrylics for the 4 paintings I'm doing because they dry really fast and this project is on RUSH mode. I will use the same palette throughout the series to maintain continuity with my colors. This painting will hang in the foyer, but the next 3 will be spread across 3 adjacent walls in the clinic where it would be obvious if the colors didn't match.
