I worked on both of these on Day 3 of the Carsten workshop. I did an under painting on both and used an alcohol wash. I wanted to let the wash show through in places but I may go back and add more color to the golden version. Robert's suggestion "Every few inches, something should change"
I found the advise to change the temperature, the stroke, the color etc. very helpful.
These are both 6.5 by 10, matted to 11x14. $100.00 ea.
