I am sharing these just for fun. This is my favorite stage of painting; I often want to stop right there. I find an underpainting tells me what the possibilities--or the risks--of the painting to come are. They are a defining part of my painting process. I study them. They speak to me (I don't always listen). Most of these are in the Collections section as finished paintings...where you can see how far, or too far, or not far enough, I took them.
