This is a work in progress from my painting class last week. This is the underpainting. I blocked in the colors and will work on adding detail this week. I hope I don't overwork it. I always start out thinking big strokes, keep it loose. But my own personality kicks in and I overwork the details.
I am in love with cadmium orange light! I haven't used it before. I always use a limited palette, because that's what my instructors told me when I first started painting.
And they wouldn't let me use black, either. I sometimes cheat a little by using black, though. Not in this painting. But a couple of paintings with lots of dark background just needed black.
