Bottle Collection: Underpainting II

18 x 24, underpainting, work in progress

I've developed the underpainting for this painting more than any of my previous paintings. It's not much fun, because the results are not very satisfying. In fact, it's really ugly even after days and days of work on it! But I realized that if I spend more time on this stage, getting the basic values of each area very settled, the later stages go much faster.

Definitely liking those bottles. You have a strange definition for ugly. Do not despair.
