You can see about three layers of various colors I have chosen to paint. These colors are about 4 times darker than the first layer of color. Most are the same colors only darker.
Here you might see I have started to put the color in for the Geisha. I always include the same colors in the background in the fore ground. Here I have painted purple, green and blue in the hair, because these colors are in the water. The red’s I choose are important… I’m thinking along the lines of opposites of the blues and greens.
