Your work is really beautiful lately, Donna. I'm curious to know more about your oil underpaintings. Are you using muted local colors? This method must be somewhat different for you since (I think) you have been using mostly a monochromatic underpainting with pastel and turpenoid.

Thank you Donna. I am using muted local colors. I am mixing oil paint and then keeping the scene very painterly fuzzy and out of focus. Then move to pastels to sharpen and highlight what needs to be sharpened and highlighted.
