I was happy with my previous Galahs but felt the background was way too busy, so I just had to start again and as a result am happier with this one!
Backgrounds are quite a challenge for me, but then I could make it easier for myself and eliminate the background altogether and there’s a big chance it will look better anyway! But, I like the challenge of the story, so I’ll keep persisting.
In this painting, I used a blue, a yellow and a red (with a dash of white gouache here and there). Most of it was painted with greys derived from mixing all three into a black.
