Subtractive Oil Painting Monochromatic Underpainting

In my first-ever oil painting, I’m starting with a monochromatic underpainting. I’ve never used this technique before… and I love it! Errors are easily fixed and adjustments are easily made.

Popular during the Baroque period, this technique was used by master painters, like Rembrandt and Caravaggio.

In 2020, it’s used by little ol’ me. 🙂 I will upload PART 2 later this week, so you can see how this painting turns out.
