Work in Progress - Copper Jar Part 2

I did some more work on the background added in some pictographs to the cave wall. I used burnt sienna, burnt umber, titanium white, thalo blue and ivory black. I don’t normally work with black out of the tube, I prefer to mix my colours to get a good dark, but I need it for mixing the copper colours in the jar and felt it had to be used elsewhere in the painting. The black is mixed with the burnt umber so it is not in its pure form.
