Cornelis Van der Geest - wip02

I painted in the dark background and started the 1st painting. I started with the left eye and went across to the right then the nose. Paint I use is very lean using only the oil in the paint and sometimes added to make the paint flow from the brush better. The colors I am using are Titanium white, yellow ochre, terra rosa, raw umber, burnt umber, ultramarine blue and lamp black. I try to stay with the earth colors since these were the colors available at that time. Cadmiums were not used or discovered yet.
