Following this weeks progress the oil canvas underpainting (below) looks a little left behind!
This suits me, for by applying a generous quantity of paint here I can really get into the spirit of the thing. Nothing like the spreading of juicy colours around to get the adrenalin moving.
While reviewing the gouache sketches I mix paint, paint that will work to support the later application, and that will be tuned for the final juxtaposition of colours.
This stage must be kept simple, zones of colour parked in the general area required with a few bold lines to boot.
