Stretched Canvas
The canvas was toned with Transparent Red Oxide then used Payne's Gray, Raw Umber and Titanium white to mix gray values. Blocked in the major elements and now will have to adjust shapes, size and values before proceeding.

WOW! This one is really going to be the top of the cake of the addictions paintings, Ann!

Thanks for the encouragement Rhonda. Perhaps it is a bit odd, but I always like my work in the initial stages. I think because the strokes are fresh and more uninhibited rather than studied or careful. It is when I start getting picky or into details I have or create more problems.
