Slowly slowly

More refining drawn contours and filling in broad tones in burnt umber. The flesh areas are still the untouched imprimatura. The areas of skin will begin to take shape using this base tone tomorrow. 

This looks a little yellow for some reason... poor camera/different time of day. 
Added a bit more detail to the fabric underpainting and then gave it a crimson glaze. I have done this early on in the painting as it is the most dominant colour. All other colours can then be judged in relation to this. 

It looks a lot more refined in these tiny photographs but this is very much like a watercolour or tinted drawing. The fun starts tomorrow when I get stuck into some real painting.
