Continuation of underpainting.

Figure scene - sitting #3

Article text
Devolpment of the underpainting continues with more glazes of burnt umber. I build and enhance the dark shadow accents and cast shadow, but, I still keep it all transparent!!. I work into the figures refining and enhancing line, form and 3 dimensional characteristics. I don't, at this point worry about finite details too much and still keep the tinted board as my highlights.
The brushes I use are - #3 synthetic round, #6 synthetic long flat, #9 large long flat bristle and a #7 natural short flat blender.
