Notes on the painting 'Progress 01'

One of the notions behind doing these small paintings was to create larger works from them. Before starting on any larger work, I usually create a thumbnail first - it is a good way to work out ideas quickly and as a guide during the creation of the final painting. Often these thumbnails turn out to be fine paintings and can function both as a finished painting as well as a thumbnail. Over the next few days, the postings will be a few steps in the process of one larger work, which is based on an earlier small painting posted to the daily blog.

At this point, the painting is in the initial wash-in, which establishes the overall composition of the piece.
