Demo- Danforth 4

Underpainting - continued

Here, I have added a yellow wash to
the sky and have started to block in
some of the figures. To maximize the
sense of backlighting, I lifted out
some of the yellow from the brightest
part of the sky with some paper
towel. The long shadows in the
foreground have been darkened a bit.
The paint is getting just slightly
thicker - but it is still transparent. The
weave of the canvas is still very visible.
