Anthony Salituro – underpainting


Anthony Salituro underpainting by Mairi BudreauPainting in monochrome is simpler than full colour and I’m finding that building this base to a painting is work but it really maps out the whole piece. There’s a lot going on in this painting and in monochrome, it’s all competing for your attention. Colour will push and pull and modify this so that Anthony triumphs as the subject.
The sun, and the window reflections are new painting subjects for me.
I like a challenge, so fingers crossed – forward ho!
