Wholly Cow - demonstration - day 5

Here's the ceramic cow finished.Since I did a gray underpainting on the cow I didn't need to add much color. I added the pink and yellow and a few spots of a very thin blue which you may not be able to see.

To get the  lines on the blocks, I put a layer of color on the block and then used a white waxy colored pencil to remove the color (the pencil is not adding any color to the painting). 

I'm still building color on the marbles. Most of the colors are very transparent so it's slow to build up. I'm adding Liquin to may paint to make the color washes.

You can see the color that I've added to the table top for the reflections.

Tomorrow I will show the finished painting. Any questions?
