AN ECONOMY OF MISCHIEF

Two days of underpainting brings this bone-in-the-throat result. I'm using a mixture of burnt umber and burnt sienna, very dry and mixed with just a drop or two of turpentine to thin it. It does almost as fast as watercolor and is a supremely lean and siccative base for the rest of the paint.

I'm guessing it will take two more days to finish laying down and then balancing these tones and then commences the painting.

Sleep well,

Uncle Jim
