I've actually got some real paint on the Freedom From Fear painting now. This is for me the hardest stage of a painting. It's the point where I get in an hurry and start doing stupid stuff. I am eager to get to a certain place where I can start working on detail, but it is slow going. This painting is considerably bigger than the Apple painting, so I have to think on bigger terms.
The red areas showing through are the places where I didn't get any paint on the "ground," or underlayer.
I may let this one rest and dry a few days.
