CMSA; WIP "survive your disaster", cynda valle; showing one of the re-applications of Super White (substitute for egg tempera as in classic tech) over the areas that will eventually have the brightest and lightest red glazes(both warm and coo) on top. i don't usually show this stage cuz it does look really weird, but after several layers it creates the most saturated lumniosity..well worth the effort!!! The other shows the setup of the painting with the reference tablet right below it...i find i have a lousy visual memory (for color especially) and i do the best job when the reference is close enough to the painting so that i can see both simultaneously;
