Hi Matt. I am going slower because I’m really trying to get limited exposure to blue light devices and you know lately my eyes are reacting adversely to the iPad. It is helping me a lot so far.
Here is a very quick 2 min underpainting I did and it is just meant to serve as a launchpad for us to communicate your conception of the underpainting. For me, letting the underpainting show through is the main focus of this painting because I really like that translucent aesthetic. Over it will be 3-4 passes of overpainting.
What kind of texture and color did you have in mind for the underpainting?
I am really risking her arm and face looking very hairy and I feel I should blend the smoother areas. I could change the background color of the canvas too. It’s just a placeholder for now cuz the grey does not strain my eyes.
I do not like this underpainting. I just want to hear your conception of it.
