First Layer Done

This image shows what I call the completed first layer of this painting. Not all artists work this way, but on a piece as large as this one, I feel more comfortable working in layers. Now the fun begins! I want to add some detail, and work on the lights and shadows. I've received some interesting comments on this progression of my work. Yes, I am scared that the finished painting won't be received well. Yes, I do feel like I'm exposing myself. Maybe it's a means of "paying it forward" for all the artists that have shared their process with me, and those artists who will continue to share their growth. Thank you for following - I'll look forward to hearing from you!
