Underpainting Taurus:
This Technique is very intensive .
First, I made and Hardboard Grey (with Acryl Paint). (you call that the Middle Tone)

After drying, I made with a pencil the first lines, the Bull, the Landscape and the Moon, the gras and little rabbit and cat.

Underpainting with Oil Paint:
I always start with the Lights in an underpaint , I paint that with Titan White.. It is not transparant… After this project, Yes…about a month…

I start with the dark in this painting, I use for shadows Raw Omber, I mix it with a little white (Zink white is transparant) to make it lighter . All the dark spots get that brown.

After drying… yes again two our three weeks…

I can give it transparent glacis colours.
When its finished.. I think about 6 months, I Show you the results…
