Oooo, Sub-Tull


Today the tree was washed in a dilute mix of straight burnt sienna acrylic and water everywhere that there were missed white spots buried deeply in the texture. Heaven forfend any white specs remain after subsequent coats of color go on, thereby ruining the barkie bark illusion.

A secondary purpose of this act was to add color-dimension to the undercoat color. The more shades and tones I use in the tree, the more natural the end effect will look.

Taupe Tomorrow. Mmmmm.
