So I've started the underpainting.

It's kinda boring but it makes the next stages much easier!

You bet it does. I swear by underpainting. The problem is folks that see it in a WIP and are not familiar with the process are often shocked and will give you lots of advice on fixing it. :yelrotflmao:

I often use acrylic to underpaint and oil for the top layers. Is that what you are using?

I'm using oil paint but with turpentine.

I'll start adding oil with each layer.

OY Vey Turpentine! Have you tried odorless mineral spirits? Much less fumes.
