Today I painted the underpainting on the left pillar. I have worked on the already painted area too, "breaking" the too monotonous color. If you look at the lower part of the pillar, you'll notice the colors are brighter and flatter. Will work on them more once they have dried a bit.

I have mostly concentrated on the light here - shadows will come with the color stage.

I paint from left to right to my hand won't smudge the wet oil paint.

The cobra goddess who protected the pharaoh was called Wadjet, the Eye of Ra. She was the goddess of Buto, and was considered to be the personification of the Lower Egypt (that is: the northern part of Egypt). She was present in the crown of the king together with her sister, the vulture goddess Nekhbet. Together they represented the Upper and Lower Egypt and symbolized the king's rule of the whole country.
