Basic/general block in of image.

Sitting 3 - NO image for this sitting

Basic/general block-in of whole composition.
-General under-painting.

Using only oil diluted with turps, I begin to outline/block-in the main areas of the image. Paying no real attention to detail or outline at this stage.
This is just to establish the main working areas of the image.
I choose a tone that is, almost the darkest, of that particular area, just to give me a framework/idea of shape/form and tone/colour.
