So, upon Kyler's suggestion, I am going to post a painting from start to finish. This is a commission painting that I am completing here for an Italian I met in a neighboring village. I am really excited because I will be able to make a contact in Italy by leaving a painting here and I get paid!!! So anyway, here is the first step. When I start the painting, after the initial sketch, I begin putting the shadow colors. I tend to hyper-saturate the hues. If it looks diseased, I know I am off to a good start.
