window demonstration #1

I thought you might enjoy an on line demonstration.
I have been talking about the large window painting
I am working on. I did a blog study on 9/5 and decided
to paint it large. I began by cutting a piece of Arches 300 lb
cold press paper to 14x13". Next I spent 2 days working on the
foundation sketch. You should be able to see the pencil lines.

My next step is to start layers of "wash". This is thin wet films
of color. Dried before adding each layer. This is called
underpainting. I am working from light to dark. Don't worry,
this is not how it will look in a few more days. I still need
to decide the color of the geranium!
