The Underpainting

The composition was scaled up from the sketch, by drawing on the canvas with a graphite (HB) pencil. I’m using a medium texture double primed canvas, and it is like drawing on course sandpaper. However the drawing is not for detail, but only to place the elements in the composition. The underpainting allows me to add some detail and values to strengthen to painting.
