Florence from Giardino Bardini - Second day
I made mixes of various tones of Manganese Blue, Permanent Orange and Underpainting White oil paint for the background and again rubbed them onto the picture with a rag to try and keep the softness. The foreground colours were mixes of Prussian Blue, Winsor Green and dashes of Permanent Orange for the trees and a mix of the background colours with ultramarine Blue for the foreground buildings also applied with a rag. I guess I start using brushes tomorrow....
