I have finally come around to putting a little paint on this (in case you missed it here is part 1). This is part underpainting and part experimentation. I still don’t know where exactly I’m going with this (not a good plan) but it should be fun getting there. I added the scroll work and signature to the original drawing and think I like them. This is all acrylic washes but I will eventually get to putting oil glazes on and deepening everything. I plan, at that point, to make things like the signature and scroll embellishments very subdued. We’ll see what happens.
