Work in Progress: Oil Painting

{Day One of Oil Illustration, 2009}
Today was the first day I've had to work on this illustration. I'm stoked that the theme for Illustration Friday this week is "Flying". I created this piece for Illustration Friday's theme of "Germs" last week. Its lucky to have a working illustration that fits in so well with two themes in a row! Before I started with the oil today, I had previously transferred the drawing onto the primed illustration board and sealed it with burnt sienna acrylic paint. (you can see a little peeking through in a few spots, specifically the buildings) I also built up some VERY general tones with the burnt sienna, which helps determine lighting. This piece is going pretty quickly, which pleases me!
