Behind the scenes

I've spent the day working on underpaintings. These don't make for the most exciting posts, so I thought I'd offer up a behind-the-scenes look.

A lot of my work gets done in batches, and this is the latest. Pencil drawings are made on the panels, which are then lightly varnished to isolate the drawing. This is about a dozen pieces from my Fragments series, drying on the workshop bench.
