Adding some drama and mystery to this painting, I have painted black and maroon around the edges to help reveal and fade out the edges of the Serpent. I have a few more adjustments to this one before it's complete, but it's very close now.
Several thin layers of black and maroon are added with a dry brush technique. This adds texture and visual depth.
