Blue Plate Special



Making a painting is NOT a linear process for me. Rather it's a set of stages, and there are frequently up to 10 paintings going through any given stage at once. This week I'm in the process of doing a batch of underpaintings, which lately I've been doing in full color, as opposed to grisaille.

Above is today's efforts so far... about 1/2 a working day to finish this underpainting. The plan has been to do 2 a day for the entire week, and thus get through all 10 underpaintings in the current batch.

Riiiiight.
