Part 2 of a 2 stage painting
This is part two of my experiment with Gamblin underpainting paint (Fastmatte). I simply painted colors over yesterday's effort. I so seldom do a very finished underpainting, but I could certainly see why some artists want to. It's clear that the values are "set" strongly in the preliminary work. I'm not sure this type of thing fits my painting personality, however. I've been a "direct" painter from the start (meaning, I paint "all at once"). We'll see, because I will try this again in the future!
Painting: Celeste Bergin, Villa, oil on 10x10 stretched canvas
