I completed the family portrait of the lady on the left with a no.1 round brush using raw umber and cad red. The lighter shades were created with watered down cad red.
Cad red with a little Chinese white also provided me with the undercoat for the two big chairs and the edge of the carpet. Here I was able to use my no.5 flat.
The underpainting for the armchairs next to the fireplace was laid in using sap green and white and plain sap green for the darker areas.
The parquet floor was applied with a no.5 flat brush using raw umber. I did not paint every single one of the wooden slates of the flooring but left some areas to the imagination.
The day´s final touches were applied to the glass panes in the door on the left using a mixture of raw umber and ultramarine to create a nice dark rather than using black.
To be continued.
