Hi Christine,
The men I awarded the FBA to didn't seem to mind it being feminine-- thanks again!

I thought your question about underpainting was intriguing. For me, any thin layer of paint that begins a composition is an underpainting. It CAN be sepias, grays, or even the complementary colors of the final painting-- this last one is tricky to do because you have to think opposite (laying down green first where red will go later, for instance) but can be very effective.

For me, I like to paint in the colors in the approximate colors they will be in the end. This helps to cover the canvas (like you, I don't like raw canvas showing through), and it always speeds up the painting process, I think, because the general framework is set up. Is that helpful?
