The Painting Process

I have started to add the detail after completing the underpainting. It is an exciting stage as one starts to see a painting's potential. It is pretty gruelling too as proportions and perspectives need to be checked and double checked. I do love it when one starts to apply colour to the muted raw umber back drop. It puts one on an instant high. As you can see there are still plenty of areas to fill and the painting did undergo a number of subtle changes. My palette is quite 'earthy' - stronger and brighter colours were added later once the initial tone and proportions were resolved.
