Very nice placement of the figures against the dark background!

Re: Tibetan women, cc enjoyed

thanks! I fixed their ears and did some tweaking. hope to post an updated photo tomorrow.

I don't know how many times I did the background before finally mixing enough paint to do it right.

Re: Tibetan women, cc enjoyed

The dark background really accentuates the light and apparent heat. Beautiful painting.

Re: Tibetan women, cc enjoyed

What I finally did: I squeezed dark colors like burnt sienna and ultramarine blue straight out of the tube into a disposable cup (using more than I thought I would need), added a little water to the cup, stirred, and painted the background quickly without adding any more water so that it would all be more consistent. It isn't transparent, but I don't care. I had painted the background many times before that.
