Painting #6 – Process (step 2)

I tend to paint blacks and whites first, to set up the contrast in the image before painting in the coloured areas. I always enjoy this stage of the painting the most, I guess because in a way it is the easiest (less colour mixing and paintbrush cleaning needed). But I also think it is because the whites and blacks in contrast with the bright orange create such a dynamic structure.

I am going to keep working tonight, so hopefully I will have another post later tomorrow.
