I am working on a piece now that is 32″ by 37 3/4″.
It’s a masonite panel. I gessoed the panel first then sketched the work in pencil. I then laid an acrylic wash of burnt sienna.
You can barely see the pencil lines here.
Now I am working the layers. Building the image. It’s the bare bones of the piece.
Eventually I will switch to oils for their richness.
Laying down shadows.
