The background and the hair is incorporated together so all those colors need to be prepared and ready to go. They are for the hair: raw sienna, yellow ochre, burnt sienna, cobalt, violet (used for the eyes- which is ultramarine, burnt sienna, perm. rose) For the sky and grasses: cobalt, cobalt and burnt sienna mixed to a darker blue, watered down alizarin, sap green, burnt sienna.These are my initial washes.
This is how it looks after doing the beginning wash. As I made my way around the girl I started incorporating the land color of sap green and throwing in some burnt sienna and cobalt in areas. You can see the brush strokes I used. This is the initial layer. I darkened it all later.
