Start of a new Painting

Here is the first couple of days work on my new painting. I have yet to decide a name for it. If anyone out there has any suggestions be sure to post a comment.

For this painting I am spending a great deal more time on the underpainting with the hope that I might do some glazing over the top of it to get the right colors. I am purposely making the face much lighter than it will be in the final work so that the lightness will shine through the glazing making the skin more luminescent.

In this stage I am only using White and Black paint. I primed the canvas with Burnt Umber.
