Little Cheep-Umber Layer Stage 1

It looks a mess at this first stage of painting.  It reminds me somewhat of sculping:  You start with an unformed lump and keep working until it looks like something.  

I overdid it with the shadows.  This acryllic stuff dries so fast I can't control it!  I will paint another layer of shadows and darken the darkest shadows.  The next stage will be to glaze opaque highlights into the lighest parts.
