The burnt sienna value drawing/underpainting
The very start of laying in color over the value drawing.
The first layer of all color completed. Now I let it dry fully before beginning to make all the refinements and adjustments it calls for.
Several days into the process of defining the way sunlight and shadow weave the gorgeous leaves of this plant together into a dramatic composition.
The final, completed image is at the top of the post.

Once the Burnt Sienna has dried I begin laying in the color, keeping true to the values I had established in the original drawing.
Painting the reflective surface of not only the Mixmaster but the corrugated metal behind it was a fun challenge.
The completed painting is at the top of the post.

|The first step is the under painting where I work out placement and values|
|Laying in the first color. I look to capture the basic color of broad shapes, while adhering to the values I established in my underpainting.|
