The Underpainting


Sunrise Coming Out of the Grand Canyon Underpainting

I haven't done underpaintings on my works for years. I always thoght it was a messy job, not worth the effort until I began reading Loriann Signori's  wonderful blog. Well, I was persuaded to give it another shot and so here it is.  After a quick thumbnail sketch and a quick layer of pastel, I applied  isopropyl alcohol 70%. Today will start and hopefully finish the painting to put on my next post. So off to my easel I go. Bye for now
