Friend and mentor Bob told me to use red if I want a painting to sell.
OK, got it.
Note: The term “mentor” comes from the name Mentor, the advisor of the young Telemachus in Homer’s Odyssey. At least that’s what I recall from my extensive Greek studies in years past (muffled laugh).
This unfinished painting started as an oil-on-canvas painting. While waiting for the oils to dry a bit I photographed the painting, imported the photo into the computer, then added some digital brush strokes as a study for later when I continue working on the original with oils.
