Cherry Bowl-Dead Layer Stage 1

I have begun the grisaille on the Cherry Bowl.  This is a very thin layer of paint.  If you look closely, you can seek bits of the imprimatura and umber stage showing through.  No problemo, it's got several more layers before it's finished.  Like the Golden Flower, it supposed to have the appearance as if it were lit by moonlight.  I think I'm ready for color, but it's got to dry for a week or more first.

I had no idea of all the stages! This is really interesting to me.
