Portrait of Zoe : Final Underpainting

This morning I glazed the piece by adding red over the jacket and reddish purple over the hair. This had the effect of bringing the painting together more. This reddish tone will show through after I start painting the final details and continue to be a unifying force. I had planned to start that process today but the darned glazing didn't dry. I had to put it out in the sun for hours and tonight its sitting under a fan. Hopefully tomorrow it will be dry enough that I can paint over it without the glazing working up into the new paint. Total time for this phase was 10 minutes of painting and about 15 hrs of watching the paint dry.
