Navajo Man - oil on canvas in progress
I worked on the underpainting for this one this morning. I am using lead white, cobalt violet and Indanthrene Blue. The blue I am not too familiar with sio it is a bit of an experiment. It seems similar to ultrmarine but more dense and opaque. Slightly silverish too, when mixed with the white. I'll let his dry overnight.
