This is the Imprimatura Layer.
The figure was inspired by the character Jaguar Paw in the Mel Gibson film Apocalypto and the Mayan people from Central America. He is wearing a golden eagle accessory (someone close to my used too). On the top corner you can see a plant with a flower. It is the Costa Rican national flower called Guaria Morada. Another piece of my land in the work. What you see now is the process taken by the Florence painters called Bruno Imprimatura the Italian for first glaze of brown. In this case I am using Burnt Umber, Raw Umber + Lemon Yellow, a tip given by Frank Covino.
