in Animal Kingdom again painting the ruins near Asia. This time I thought I'd do a step by step for the next few entries. Here's my under painting, I start with a gessoed canvas in either grey or warm tones (this one is yellow ochre toned, then I block in my darks and major shapes. I use a big 1" brush for most of this stage, in the next stages I'll start to refine things like the trees walkway and ruins.
I have to go out of town for the next day or so, so we'll see if I can post again Monday or Tuesday. Hope you guys like.
