A Time to Enjoy 8" X 8" Oil on canvasboard
Robin Weiss, a painter from Washington state whose work I just love, begins with a monochromatic underpainting in diluted oil paint. He uses a burnt sienna/transparent red oxide-ish color. This is a big help with values and because some of it is left showing through the top layers, it adds additional interest when completed. I don't know if he makes a color sketch as well, but his finished colors are always rich and clean.
What excited me about this painting was using a large brush to apply color in the woman's shirt and the water. I've been trying to create a "looser" approach to paint application, and I was happy with the outcome in those areas. Yay!
