Stage 1 - darks are painted using 'permanent mauve' and 'prussian blue'. I commence painting a 'turpsy' underpainting.
Completed 'underpainting'...I leave this a couple of days to dry.
Stage 2 - I use a thicker, oilier, slow drying medium. I commence the painting, starting with the backbround, forward.
