Finished Underpainting

Just a quick post today.  I've completed the underpainting on the family portrait.  Some painters do just a loose, sketchy type underpainting, which is what I usually do, but in this case I wanted to be right on with likenesses.  I don't think I can get any closer than this.  I've been kind to the adults, shaving off a few years.  Now comes the color - scary.  (18x24 oil on stretched canvas.)


  1. Very nice, Lokelani!! Wow...FIVE faces! I also do a detailed drawing for portraits.
    This will turn out great!

    1. Thanks Dean. I've never done five faces before, so I'm hoping it turns out ok. I'm confident?
