In Progress 8x20

In Progress-8x20
using Near Millis Seafood as the reference

here's a pic of one of several ive got in the studio pipeline. I use blues, oranges and several values of pinks and lavenders to underpaint with. I like to get rid of the really orange paint the canvas started out as. you can see peeks of it in areas that will probably get highlites on it. I work out the value scheme and drawing in this phase, as well as the temperature scheme. I let this dry and then go back on top of it. I love this part of painting process. very intuitive and love the loose manner I work in (at this stage).
my plan is to keep a lot of that even as I put more accurate colors and marks down.
Note- please LIKE me/friend me (don't know which at this point/whatever you do over there LOL) on Facebook to follow me there. hit this link
