This painting needs a more defined focal point so that will be the next step. I don't want to lose all of the bold lines but I will have to decide how to draw the eye to one area more than the others. I have a good start with the transparent red and gold.
Crimson is mixed with Burnt Umber and lots of water. No Matte Medium is used here so the paint stays transparent. Cadmium Yellow Medium is mixed with Burnt Umber, again without Matte Medium.
