Heres the underpainting for a new still life painting on an 11"x14" stretched linen. I've never worked on this size before so it should be interesting. The pomegranates are from my imagination to hold the place until I'm ready to place the real ones in, which I'm going to try and do in one shot so I get that super fresh color of just picked fruit. A lot of people seem to be using a colored ebauche these days, which I still sometimes use, but what I really like about the umber wipeout is it's all value and you start off really smashing the light which is a little harder to do with a colored ebauche.
