Another underpainting

I thought I'd paint with Fastmatte again today and do another 2-step painting. I think it will be interesting to apply color over the top of this!

Underpainting: Celeste Bergin, Outdoor artist, oil on 9 x 12 stretched canvas

Gorgeous already, Celeste! Now this one will look even more fabulous with more color. Why, you ask (given my love of this palette as is)? Because this looks more like a modern day artist (the hat, the hair, the mode of dress...) so more color will add more life to him! Still...I so love this palette you've been using of late!

These underpaintings have been interesting to watch. I think I am going to give it a try with the ultra/red colors-I normally do gray or yellow.

Hi Celeste,
Is that You or an imaginary person. I am sure you will bring it to life. Love your work a la Elio Comacho

Hi Celeste. I like how it is. (and the model is left-handed like me, haha)
It is always gratifying to see how you work. I like the small profile picture

Dear Celeste,

I admire the freedom your hand dances with, while holding a brush with paint. Your strokes are strong and with confidence, so it will be interesting to see how the color layer turns out. I particularly like it how it turned out on a couple of previous post with the house.

You are such a master!

Wishing you all the very best,
