Step 1: Light pencil sketch sealed with a wash of acrylic yellow ochre.

Step 2: A shadow study in transparent acrylic burnt umber. When it is dry I seal it with a layer of acrylic glazing medium.

Step 3: First layer of color in transparent acrylics. I can still see my drawing beneath the washes. Once more, I sealed this step when dry with acrylic glazing medium and allowed it dry overnight before moving on to the next step.

Step 4: I rubbed the canvas with a thin layer of water soluble linseed oil, spreading it as thinly as possible and removing any excess with a dry paper towel. I completed the painting in one layer using water miscible oils, making sure to completely cover all traces of my drawing.
