Let the painting begin! [WIP] (A portrait of the artist Hitomi Tanaka)

let the painting begin

N.B. This is merely a preliminary underpainting to the oil painting proper, i.e., it is NOT the finished work.

Pen and ink drawing on 18 x 32″ 12 oz cotton canvas given three coats of acrylic primer, egg tempera roughing in, and now, out come the oil colours, hopefully completion in a few days time… today’s date, Oct 6 2019
