Under Paintings

Beginning the Creative Process
10x10 collages on panel

The birds are taking form, going from sketches to loose under paintings. I thought I might share some in progress photos. I love doing the under painting because I know that it's going to be covered with paper, and knowing that allows me the freedom to be loose and impressionistic and not get all caught up in the details. I always tell my students "Don't fall in love with your underpainting!" Because if you do, you'll never want to collage on top of it!
