painting @ the Pipeline trail, Richmond VA.

this is my underpainting.

An under painting is like a color sketch. There’s no need to mix in gel mudium with the paint at this step. You can thin the paint with turpentine. And think about where the light and shadows are.  I took about 3 hours to get this underpainting . I’m trying to be accurate with the bridges. But I make corrections as I go.
