To begin modeling in the highlights and shadows, I apply separate glazes of Old Holland cadmium red, Windsor Newton rose madder genuine, and red lake. All are thinned with liquin (4 or 5 parts for each part of oil paint) with the exception of cadmium red. This is a strong pigment requiring only a suggestion of color. The rose madder and red lake are transparent and the cadmium red is made so by the thinness of the mixture. As a result, all the underlying detail remains visible.
