New Painting in Progress
This is the beginning of my latest painting, "A Study in Silence". When I begin a painting, I always start with an abstract underpainting that people can generally only see if they are looking very closely.
I use the colors that I think best apply for the subject matter, though I may not use them again in the layers that follow. It's a way for me to quickly get in the mindset of the work, and quickly move past the intimidating blank canvas.
