Step 1 On a 28"x38" linen canvas I've put down the drawing for the painting. The drawing was done in a grey pastel pencil.
Step 2 Here I've gone over the drawing with Veronese green thinned out with turpentine. Its now ready to start the underpainting in a grey tone.
step 3 This is the completed underpainting. It is done in thinned out oil paint consisting of cobalt green and cadmium red.
Step 5 In this step the background has been laid in and everywhere the paint has started to be built up.
