6 x 6" Oil on Gessobord
Got a good start on this today, but the studio was pretty warm...so had to call it a day. Will try to finish tomorrow. This is how I start all my paintings, drawing in a value study with burnt umber. Then I begin to add color, like the start of the copper bowl and the dark background. The value study makes it much easier to add color...so I'm not trying to do to many steps at one time.
