... completed in about 3 hours... from a photo I took a few years ago in the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
oil on canvas 40cm x 30cm
using colours I just had on the palette before it gets cleaned-
cad red, cad yellow mid, cad yellow light, violet, ultra blue, prussian blue, titanium white
quick sketch with cad red to position the main features
getting the background colours established- they will determine the choices for the other elements
positioning of the figures- just shapes but the sizes and relation to each other are important to get right early on
adding some white for the clothes and some for the floor/reflections
getting the floor reflections and the lines in-
the light is fading (rainy day) so it is difficult to get an accurate photo
this is better light- but some glare to confuse
I will check in the morning to see if anything needs adjusting...
thanks for looking!
