What’s on my easel?

underpainting, burnt sienna on Ampersand Gessobord tinted with light red ochre gesso

This is the progression of a new piece in acrylic. This is 30×40 on Gessobord (Ampersand brand). More figures need to be added as well as traffic and some street lights, signs on the left. This is the underpainting stage, where it is most important to work out the drawing, values and composition, before working in color. I’ve used burnt umber in this case, but any dark neutral color will work. Stay tuned as this is currently on my easel and I’ll post a step-by-step description of each stage of the painting.
