Following Affinity

First layers on Affinity start with pigments.

Affinity is getting more color. Im jazzed up to paint chestnut. It is probably my favorite solid color to paint. This piece has been layered in both pigments and oil washes so far. The last photo, I believe, shows approx ten layers of color so far. More will be added along with highlights and shading.

After many layers of pigments I add oil washes.

Oils are very rich and add color quickly, but take a while to dry.

More pigments are added after the oil washes.
She will dry for 12-48 hours after the last application of pigments.
