Figure scene sitting #7

Article text
I work into the background with a vermilion glaze, from centre to right, whilst building up the dark red/ brown shadow tones to the left. Into this I loosely!!! draw in some of the detail as well. I rework the floor tones and start the carpets. Again, no focus on the finite details just yet. I begin to set down the feel and tones of the lower wall behind the legs of the figures. Nothing too focused, it is used to set placement and dimensional characteristics for now.
