Nude a week 28: Three colour acrylic of a seated nude

I painted this a few days ago.  I painted it in three layers using acrylic on  watercolour paper.  I began using just yellow, then I worked with cyan, and finished with dilute magenta.

I like the effect of the yellow showing through and the colours blending in the shadows and the darkest shadows blending of the three colours.  This was a quick pose, drawn from life.

Below you can see the covers which I designed for three interesting ebooks written by my father in law, H E L Mellersh.  They are now available on Kindle, ipad etc.  You can learn more at
