underpainting of yellow ochre and violet, small amount of white, acrylic on canvas, 9x12"

underpainting of yellow ochre and violet, small amount of white, acrylic on canvas, 9x12"

Based on an earlier study, I am trying to capture the color variation I acheived using acrylic and pastel on cardboard with just acrylic on canvas. Began by toning the canvas with yellow ochre and violet acrylic (opaque layer of ochre with transparent violet glaze on top). Then mixed violet with small amount of sap green to do the underpainting of the figures. Will begin adding other colors next: cobalt, alizarin, titanium white, burnt umber as well as continuing the use of the colors on this layer.
