Finally I can get back to painting after a very hectic summer. This is the first step of a commission that needs to be done in a few weeks. I left it way too long (yet again). I will have to do a lot of work on it in a short time.
I have drawn out the features and put in the first wash in the background. The background is going to be a neutral grey but with blue uneven tones in it. It looks darker here than it is because I wanted to be able to see the line drawing in the photo.
