Layers of a painting

I often like to build up a painting using layers of colour.  In the sunshiney one I last posted I started of with a rough purple layer. (This will make the shadows look nice and rich as it complements the yellow which is the main colour in this painting.)

I’ll then build up layers of colour allowing wee bits of the base (purple) layer to show through which will tie the whole image together.
