Early stages - general wash over broad areas. Ultramarine wash first over drawing, then a burnt umber wash over brick area. Left bucket untouched. Started filling in bricks with zinc white and zinc white/hansa yellow medium.
Brick stage - painted bricks around drawing of the state showing through paint.
Wash and bucket stage - to make sure the bricks don't have a sharp contrast I applied a zinc white wash over the area. I also painted in the concrete sidewalk, brush and bucket.
Democratic paint stage - In order to make it seem like the red was applied over the blue I did what made sense: apply the blue down first.
finishing touches - dropped the red down over the blue. added detail to the bucket and brush along with the bricks on the red state area.
