Quiet Pleasures, step 3

The underpainting

After I finished the drawing, I began the background using burnt sienna and ultramarine blue with a #6 filbert bristle brush. When done, I used a blending brush as demonstrated to smooth the surface.

Continuing on with the burnt sienna/ultramarine blue/liquin mixture, I proceeded to finish the dark and medium tones. I left the light areas on the book and cloth bare.
