Commission: Ana, 1

Thanks to my roommate's relatives, I now have two commissions. This is the first: 3 paintings, in acrylic, 24" x 36"

A tree on the brow of a hill, with a stream running by into a waterfall.

Here is the first stage of the three canvases, a quick graphite sketch to determine composition.

And here is the second stage: a semi-opaque glaze that will create an underlying tonal unity between and within the pieces, as well as adding richness to the colors I will paint over them. [I know it's a little hard to see the drawing underneath now, but that will soon be remedied...]

Coming soon: Stage 3, initial block-in...

EDIT: The remaining steps are now available, here.
