Madras Oil painting: WIP, originally uploaded by mmvgonzales.

I don't know if Matisse put down an undertone first but the painting feels so warm to me that I mixed burnt sienna and yellow ochre to lay in this undertone.
After it dried for a week I sketched in the figure with vine charcoal and then lightly misted it with water to set the charcoal. I'm ready now to mix up paint and go at it!
