Mother: stage 3

Last night I worked on the large 'Mother and child canvas, seen here with a clutch of drawings for me to imbibe. Much of the drawing was revised using Red Ochre, starting with the head, where I returned to the ploy of a head within a head which for the moment solved my problem. Other changes in the drawing occurred and the background design saw the red lifted with straight Cadmium Light Red and a splash of yellow to enliven the whole.
