This photo was taken over 15 years ago. I was with my sons in SF Chinatown. They had this great little playground amidst the busy city with grandmothers babysitting their grandchildren. Charming outfits! I got a pic of twins as well as this little girl with the most reddest and most beautiful coat I’ve seen.
I began with a four color palette to establish values: titanium white, ivory black, yellow ochre, and transparent oxide red.
Because she had a bright red coat, I added cadimum red.
Eventually, cerulean blue was added last to add more brightness to the painting.
I’m not quite sure I’m finished. I’ll take it to Michael for a critique. It will be interested to see what he has to say.
