The under painting covered most of the old painting but you can still see places where the old dahlia bouquet is visible.
I use Guerra Paints pigments in dispersion for this stage. My goal is to get a painterly surface with the values mostly right and without fussing. Since I know I will add pastel on top of this, I am not too worried about getting things exact. What freedom! I am the happy, splashing artist at this point.
