|"Yellow blouse", oil on panel, 24x30cm, available|
For this painting I experimented with using a raw umber underpainting. I wanted to see if I could speed up the painting process if I created an underpainting first, not having to think about color but focussing just on shapes and values.
The underpainting went fine but in the coloring phase, I felt too restricted by the 'drawing' underneath and found it much more difficult to get the colors the way I wanted.
I'm happy with how the painting turned out but I think I'll stay with the alla-prima approach for my paintings for now..
