Don Keemauv

"Don Keemauv"  (pastel, 8x6 inches)  click here to bid

I already had a donkey titled "Lavender" and since lately I've been naming the donkeys "Don Ke...." or "Donna Ke..." I decide this one could be mauve.

Here are some progress shots:
  The first layers are gold colored. This is Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold fluid acrylic color mixed into Golden (brand) Fine Pumice Gel. The gel is clear, so the color mixture is semi-transparent, and gets darker on each application.
3 layers of the gold primer

the final terra cotta primer layer with the photo reference
 The final layer of primer is the Art Spectrum (brand) Pastel Primer in the terra cotta color. I lay it into the darkest areas, then scrub and dry-brush it into the medium values of the gold to continue the value scale and add more depth to the monochromatic underpainting.

Then, on to the pastel!

Thanks for watching! Please share!
