Brutus

"Brutus"  (pastel, 7x5 inches)  click here to bid

This one I did with my usual terra cotta pastel primer under the background, and black pastel primer under the young bull. I like using the black primer for any area that needs to be a very dark, rich black. Then the other 'black' highlight colors, the browns, blues and greens go on very nicely over the primer, and the darker black is the accompanying low note (thanks to Terry Ludwig's Eggplant!)
