Still-life Under-painting

Here is the under-painting for the new still-life. This time, I used three pigments: burnt sienna, burnt umber, and cerulean blue. The idea was to take the white of the canvas away, and give a little indication of value, and temperature.

Pencil Lay-in of a New Still-life

Here is my new still-life of a wine glass, corkscrew, and bottle, chef's knife and tomatoes on a cutting-board, and a stack of cookbooks. This one is laid in with pencil on a 18 by 24 inch canvas. I plan to paint this in oil.
