Painting PARIS 2: The Underpainting by David Gray

This is step 2 in my usual working process. Avoiding unnecessary detail, I fill in the drawing with appropriate color and value with slightly thinned oil paint. I also refine the drawing as needed in this stage. For me this is a great set up to the overpainting -- the real business of painting.
