My acrylic paintings begin with a detailed underpainting, usually done in raw umber. This step establishes the forms and textures, but pays little heed to space and lighting. Next, the substrate is tinted, and the actual painting is begun. Once the subjects are established, I mask them with liquid latex, which facilitates painting the background. When I've get the values close to the way I want them, the latex is peeled off and the final details are completed.
