Here we are at stage 3, the first glaze of red. It went ok. It pushed the highlights back more than I thought it would but I'll be refining the painting at the end so that's fine. I'm still being overly cautious at this point.
Next post : I went crazy and blued up my shadows, glazed the whole thing blue. Prussian blue to the rescue! (or doom) remains to be seen.
*** Next post coming later this afternoon; Caution -- I throw it.
