The most important part of the process I go through with any painting is the beginning stages. The first pass through involves activating the surface through blocking out larger areas of color; with figurative works I also will give the figure some sort of grounding, whether it be through a shadow or a shape to frame the figure. 

In this work I allow the figure to come forward by remaining mostly the white of the gesso underneath, while the surface around the figure starts to engulf it.
