Underpaints red and blue

I've been working on this large 36x60 painting, which is the largest oil piece I've done to date, and when I was working on the underpainting I decided that some of the grays I was using were too dull, even if I was going to eventually paint all over them. Before:

After, with some much stronger red and blue thrown on there:

You can see that I had already added some of the top layers when I went back and made this adjustment.

The other thing going on with this piece is that I'm new to working with such a large size, so I've kept it as simple as possible. That way I could focus on adjusting to the size without getting distracted by conceptual decisions.

Check back tomorrow for a photo of the finished piece.

Going big

Although I'm already at home, so I don't know what that means. Anyway, I'm going from small fish paintings to seeing how large of a painting I can fit in my studio:

Great Big Smalls opening tonight

I'll be there at least for a little bit. I have 4 landscapes in the show, and when the fish are finished, I'll bring them over too.
