Illustration Friday - "Feet"

These are Zed's feet. I painted over a ground of Cadmium Red Light because I hate this color and want to use it up. It was my first time putting light paint over dark - that was fun.

As usual, I don't have time to finish. One day I'm going to spend the entire day "finishing" all the paintings I've left in this condition - it dissatisfies me that there are so many - but that day will have to wait until AFTER I've figured out what's wrong with them all so I can fix them!

Can we expect a local gallery opening anytime soon?

Hi,
Yes, it's acrylics on canvas pad with modeling paste as the support - you can't see the texture in the photo, of course...

Can't you mix it with some other color to make it less objectionable? I have a green in watercolor that's just horrible, but it makes a great mix with a yellow or brown or blue...

Nice work, I like the colours.

I LIKE that red. Does that mean I have no taste?
