Prior to beginning his actual painting .I often underpaint but now I will do it every time the way he does.
The process satisfies the need to paint with a brush. I started by drawing shapes and blocking in solidly with opposing colors using lights and darks creating a value study and working out the composition. Then taking alcohol and a stiff bristle brush painting each area and letting seridipity take charge. Here is the underpainting .Stay tuned for the finished painting.
