Cocoa at the Window
I worked on this painting of Cocoa yesterday when I finished the cow and I'm much happier with it now. I glazed raw umber into the shadow areas and used a mixture of cerulean blue and white brushed heavily in the light areas and into the glaze in the mid tones to brighten the painting, add contrast and unify the color throughout.
