1172 Lorne Crescent, 8x10, egg tempera, work in progress

I always liked this pretty view. Here's my India ink underpainting. Or Grisaille. Doing an grisaille underpainting helps getting things started.
It sets the value which is most important. Then, it's a matter of glazes, tweaking, scumbling, and polishing. Did I mention that with egg tempera you can get a nice sheen and temper the surface by hand polishing with a soft cloth. Plus, no risk of lint or hairs getting trapped like a (fly in amber) for all eternity. (Often happens when you varnish)
