I’m working on the second drawing of a two-part newspaper illustration series tonight (due tomorrow morning!)…Just wanted to share how much I enjoy the underpainting part of my process…Working out the values alone can be very satisfying. Then, you must wade into the unknown currents of the color. Exciting, but can be scary. At this stage, I try to stick to the burnt sienna hues, just liked I used to in ‘traditional’ paintings. Texture is key at this point…Gonna be a long night!
