Under Painting

IMG_3227

Under painting is a useful resolution by indicating the value and color tones of the scene. It’s merely a easy block-in, giving the artist a layout of how the tones work together. This is just another way of working out the color and value scheme of the painting. This lesson would work well with oils and pastels. The under painting becomes a creative opportunity to indicate texture, atmosphere, rhythm, harmony, and emotion. In your final completion of the work a good part of the under painting may show through providing a relationship and further aspect to the final painting.
