This is another piece from Laurel Daniel's workshop. This piece started with a line and mass block-in. Laurel gave us a great hand-out which explained this time honored, classic approach.
For the block-in you are to spread the pigments thinly, scumble and scrub in. In the top practice, I had my pigment too thick, and mixed it w/ too much linseed oil, so I tried again. In the bottom practice I started to get it. Laurel uses a neutral mix of alizaron, french ultramarine and raw umber. She uses this for her starts, as well as for a mixture throughout the painting. Todays mix appears blacker than the one I showed you on my last post. This just shows the lines, not masses, blocked in.
