Day 2 - Harley Brown's Friend

Harley Brown's Friend (after Harley Brown), Acrylic on Gessoed Mat Board, 10"x7"

Day 2 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

This is from another Harley Brown demo piece in an old International Artist magazine. I used a lot more color than in my first two attempts, basically expanding to what I consider a full palette - cadmium red, Indian yellow, ultramarine blue, titanium white, and carbon black. The under-painting is Indian yellow - you can see it around the eyes and around the edges although it also comes through near the hairline and around the mouth.

So far, so good. I am enjoying the challenge of doing faces, and so far, I like my results.
