Underpainting of Mt. Si – Ready for Color!

Here is what an underpainting looks like before I add the color.   I paint it a little bit lighter because as the transparent glazes are added it darkens the value.

When I saw this scene the clouds practically covered all of Mt. Si (Snoqualmie Valley, WA).  I plan to bring the clouds all the way down to the trees and then some.  A typical foggy Northwest day.

I’ll post the finished painting soon!
