Okay, well it's not actually in progress anymore because the completed painting is now spending some time drying out in the studio! But meanwhile I thought I'd share the process with you :0)
So here it is having toned my canvas, drawn out my glass and completed two tonal layers to establish my lights, darks and mid-tones...
At this point I have painted two further monochrome layers in various shades of greys. I use a black which I mix myself because I find the pre-mixed ones to be too flat and dull.
You can see that some of the earthy warmth from the toned canvas still glows through these layers...
Each layer has to be allowed to dry before the next, so it does take patience!
I'll be posting the completed painting next, so watch this space :0)
