Soot experiment 3 - step III.. Getting away from soot... again!

My last step kind of discarded the soot underpainting in favour of creating the mood I had in mind using a number of transparent color washes...

At best, I kept the spirit of soot towards the completion of this painting. The second step could have been final if I had gone for a more elaborate soot underpainting... but I was too impatient!

Note to self: "In retrospect, I could have tinted soot with a powerful transparent blue as opposed to fluorescent rose... I ended up with brown mud!"
