Beginnings and Middlings of a Painting, Part Six or Seven

 All right.  Now it's time to have the blood dripping down.  As you can see from my board, I tried any number of mixtures of blood, looking for the right color and consistency.  I wanted it to flow and not coagulate, as well as be the nice rich dark color as opposed to the fake, ketchupy color. 

Ketchupy.  It's a good word, isn't it?

My intent is to have the glorious, forgiving gold dripping down the painting and onto the arm.

Stay tuned!
