8x10 oil underpainting on canvas
I decided to try to simply on this underpainting. Use less color work in a subtractive method. This is mostly burnt sienna, Liquin and a tiny bit of indanthrone blue. I covered the canvas with burnt sienna and wiped, brushed and Q-tipped. As a pastel artist I am accustomed to working from dark to light, but with an opening to change my mind.. My understanding of this process is that if I have a dark down and later, when glazing I want it to be lighter, tough luck. I guess I will see soon enough. Value is what it is all about at this point.
