A good friend of mine happened to be flying to India in a day and I needed a model for a very important goddess. It just so happened that Lakshimi is her nickname at work. Synchronicity!
Yellow Ochre right out of the tube all over the top half of the canvas. Theh I took out my spritzer and gave it a spray down to make the paint drip and the surface slick.
Then I took a rag and vigorously rubbed the surface and the edges to neutralize the white ground. I gave it a few spritzes and propped it upright to let it drip and dry.
