Cadmium Scarlet

8" x 6"
A friend suggested I try cadmium scarlet, shown here in the highlights.  Really sings!  This was painted on top of an old landscape but not much shows through.  Kept my colors to cadmium yellow light, ultramarine blue, cadmium scarlet and white.  Also trying to use thicker strokes and less blending.   Painted at the Venice Portrait Studio in about two hours.
