Had enough of struggling with large paintings for a while. Need some play time.
Took three small canvases and one imaginary image and approached each with a different underpainting and included that underpainting colour through out the painting - bit of a 'mother colour' effect. Laid the underpainting on and while wet used the rubber shaper to pick out and create a crude value plan. Dried, then blocked in the darks using the underpainting colour in a dark value then punched with opaque of the same colour family. Used compliments in opaque for punch.
Total time just under 90 minutes.
