Grisaille Approach - Part Deux

Here's the first swipe of oil. I'm trying to use glazes and then work in opaques on the lit side of the picture. I like the fact that the values are already in place because of the under painting and show through the transparent shadowed areas.
Frankly, I don't know what I'm doing but it is fun and I'm not going to worry about making mistakes. This is about learning. At least, that's what I'm telling myself.

I loved the underpainted version in its own right, but as its evolving its becoming even more beautiful and atmospheric... I love the soft light...
Fascinating to see the process :)

For not knowing what you are doing you are doing a great job! It's really wonderful!

So very yummy! I'm noticing many artists are starting to work in oil again. It's a magic medium isn't it?
