3 Draw­ing and block­ing in

ImagineFX - - Artist Insight Underpainting Techniques -

I start by stain­ing the can­vas with a thin layer of burnt um­ber, fol­lowed by draw­ing the gen­eral forms with a brush. I then scrub in the ba­sic value scheme. At this stage things are very loose and I’m open to com­po­si­tional changes and im­pro­vi­sa­tion.

Burnt um­ber used on its own is a warm colour. I ap­ply it trans­par­ently to achieve that warm ‘glow’ that I’ll re­tain in a few places.
