First Three Steps

Darkest dark.  Lightest light.  Brightest color.  These are what I like to paint first when I start a painting.  This helps me to judge my darks and lights correctly and my colors accurately.  Starting a painting off well is so important.  As a famous artist once said, "Well begun is half done."

"The Andalusian"  (in progress)   36" x 36"   Oil
