My painting method is a layered approach, therefore it is developed in successive stages. After drawing my composition on canvas with thinned paint (ultramarine blue or other non staining pigment) and a brush I begin my block-in using full color mixtures starting with the darkest mass first. By starting this way, I find it easier to judge the value relationships between adjacent areas.

Update: My previous demo has been removed and hopefully I will get another one available for you. Unfortunately it's format was not mobile friendly and Google doens't like that. Therefore the demo I show here is one posted on my blog. It will give you a basic overview even though it's in my impressionist style. Please use your browsers back button to return to this page.
