In Progress

I have a few photos of my current painting in progress.  With the size and background on this, it is one of my more involved pieces.  As with all of my paintings, I start off with a basic sketch onto the canvas.

Then I add a rough first layer of paint just to work everything in and then add numerous subsequent layers, building color and value as I go.
