I am now working on the third of four pictures commissioned by the same person. The "Minoan Boxing Boys" and "Gladiator Boys" were his first 2 pictures. So I thought I would show the steps (or at lest the first few) of how I work. Here are the first 3 steps; 1) drawing in the figures. 2) adding black and grey wash underpainting to set them and start to get some form. 3) adding white wash underpainting, again to make them more solid/sculptural.
