Bananas For Process

I scanned this one in progress for your enjoyment.

First I "inked" the line art with acrylic.

Second I built up layers of acrylic wash. to create the forms and values. This is the underpainting.

Thirdly and finally, I lay down a transparent layer of concentrated watercolor.

The study is done simultaneous to test the colors.
