One Two, Three and then you have, "One Short of A Dozen"!

Here is an example of my process when I am painting.  The first is a loose sketch on a white canvas.  I am drawing with a thin brush with thinned burnt sienna paint. Sometimes I tint the canvas but here I wanted to use the white.  Next is a block in of the shapes and shadows. You see I have my darkest darks.   The third shows more definition and the last, I bring on the yummy details and the highlights.  "One Short Of A Dozen" 24'x24" oil painting on canvas.
