Leopard Painting Continued

Here I have finished with the turpentine wash on all the spots. (Whew, a lot of spots!) While it may take a while to do this step, I find it worthwhile in the end. The burnt sienna - raw sienna wash adds a warm glow and I let it peak through subsequent layers. It will be subtle, but I find it acts as a unifying color throughout the piece.

Wow, beautiful! That looks very warm and natural, and yet very striking at the same time.

Nice Leopard, I'm an artist myself I hope to get back into painting again one day. I once, years ago did a small a5 size picture of a jaguar entirely out of dots with pen and ink and I know how you feel doing those spots over and over again.
