Getting Started

 Finally at the point where I can start the work on the final piece. Got myself all set up with the large 30 x 30 inches canvas on my easel upstairs at our gallery and put my example boards up for reference.

I covered the whole canvas with a creamy yellow wash then added washes of blue, green and violet - letting them drip and blend. I decided that as there was going to be more of the red colours in the bottom half with the jars and pomegranates, I would echo this colouring in the top right corner

Once the canvas was dry, I started on building the layers by adding pink and blue coloured tissue papers with more washes. This helped to consolidate the background colours.
