Tried something a little different. Coated the canvas with thinned raw umber, wiped it off, and then drew in composition with a brush and more raw umber. Than I just went for it. Paint went on a little differently with the wet imprimatura. It's a small 8"x10" canvas so my goal was to finish it alla prima in one session. I used an Ott light off to the side to simulate daylight.
