Next session of my painting based on my drawing ‘Nude – 17-06-15‘. I let the painting dry for a day and started to add some transparent oxyde red, alizarine crimson, raw sienna and dioxazine mauve.  I came up with the idea to give the horse a sorrel color in order to trick people by pareidolia easier into seeing both figures. It still will be difficult to distribute the attention to both equally though.

I think it is a wise decision to execute the painting in greens, violets and oranges because they are the secundary colors, often expressing duality. Basically purple is a dark horse. It adds to the flavour of the mysterious theme, clothed in a clairobscur setting. Still a lot of work to do.
