When I was preparing to do yesterday's page I had an idea about how to paint it (dark purpley foreground silhouettes first, then wash the light red/blue background over that) that led me to doing some layering and stuff, which resulted in some kind of nifty atmospheric effects, I thought, especially the reddish sort of glow on the ground. So I thought I'd try some more of that kind of layered approach today, even though I knew it would be a lot trickier with a main subject that wasn't simply in silhouette. And one thing I found in doing this was that if you want a nifty radiant glowy layer effect, you'd better be sure your bottom layer is intensely colorful, because that layer determines just how bright all the layers together can possibly be—so if your bottom layer is more of a somewhat subdued reddish purple, you're not gonna be able to get a warm red glow effect out of it in the end. Which I probably would have realized if I'd stopped to think about it beforehand and plan that particular part of it out a little more, but eh well live and (hopefully) learn!
