Work in Progress: First Day with Oil

{First Layer of Oil, 2009}
{Detail, 2009}
I started putting a thin layer of oil paint on this illustration today. I wanted some of the values and a few parts of the drawing to show through (at least for now) while I am working out the major color palette. Tomorrow I spend a lot of my time at the Des Moines Art Center teaching, but I hope to get some painting done during my afternoon break and continue painting on Thursday and Friday! My aim is to try to be done with this by mid next week.
