Nice work David,,,I like the complimentary color palette and the lighting.Do you work with an underpainting? Usually? Roughly how many layers of color? I am trying to understand your technique. I noticed a lot of secondary color layers on top of a established area of color...??

Thanks Charlie. I also made a watercolor of the same composition to see how I could tackle the same subject. On this particular piece I used the Italian chiaroscuro technique of a vermillion red underpainting. The colors I overpaint with create a visual tension that livens up the whole piece. Certainly much more evident when you view the original work than online. I have layered a lot of different colors to create the concrete. It looks blue but that was not the real colors used. Tricky but it works...I think.
