Red hair Demo

redhairdemosep2015

The week ahead is going to be demo time for all the classes. This first one is a return to Kate’s Red Hair.

The hair is pure cadmium at some places, turning to a mix of cad red, ultra blue and umber for the darker parts.

My usual palette, here, of titanium white, ultramarine blue. alizarin crimson, yellow ochre, burnt umber, cad red and cad yellow. There is an addition of pthalo blue for the t-shirt.
