Prussian Blue and Burnt Umber Washes

^the painting

^detail shot.

This painting started as very thick primer. I then did washes of prussian and burnt umber. I used these two colors because together they make a nice black. And the washes needed to be dark so they would pick up the texture of the primer. Then I just did my usual detailing and toning around the two colors.
