Work in Progress: Step 2

Next I cover the canvas with a thin coat of paint and establish the patterns of light and dark. At this point I am using acrylic paint thinned with water, so that I can change my mind and make adjustments if necessary. While it dries I work on something else. Sometimes at this point I will leave the painting for a day or so in order to put a little distance between us. It keeps me from overworking it.
