Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I redid my dead color under painting. I felt it was just too dark, when I tried to lay color on the value was too much!

Is the piece for sale? No

This is an intriguing image. With the dead coloring, the key to success is to maintain transparent shadows (and darks) and to paint lights thicker with white. Avoid adding white to the shadows at this stage, so they maintain their clarity and relative warmth.
