Paint along with Gilead Step 9

 Having established the drawing and wiped away all of the loose charcoal, start filling in shadow areas with a warm brown glaze. This is made from a mix of burnt umber and purple and a tiny bit of black thinned out with water and clear acrylic medium.  You want to retain transparency for most of this painting so that the stone texture shows through.
 This won’t be my darkest color, but it sets the whole painting down ...in stone as it were.


I’m mostly darkening the under sides of things and recessed areas that would be deep in shadow.
