Read from the Book

There are many different ways to approach a blank support. Some artists begin by toning (or covering) it with a thin wash of color. This “underpainting” provides a base for building colors, and sometimes it peeks through in the final painting. This process prevents your final artwork from ending up with unpainted areas. The underpainting is generally a neutral color; warm colors work well for earth-toned subjects, and cool hues suit most other subjects.
