Thor Under Painting

Trying a new technique. Well actually it is a very old technique but I am doing it for the first time. It was used by early painters during the Renaissance after oils had been made popular by artists such as Van Dyke. The technique involves using a dark brown as a neutral base to plot out all of the highlights and shadows  of the painting. Then it is simply a matter of adding color over those areas. We will see if it makes a difference.
