Salvaging the Underpainting

Posted on April 27, 2017

I tried something new with this one, in that I did the burnt umber underpainting with a commercial medium, but it got gummy right away and consequently the paint surface does not appear smooth. I’m doing the grisaille with the medium I normally use, made of 40% linseed oil and 60% mineral spirits. At least it’s covering the first layer well enough to salvage it.
