Desert Scene 3

With a splash of Brown, Red and Orange paints I take a wet rag and mop the colors around being careful not to scrub out the drawing.  Some artists hate that the charcoal mixes with the paint at this stage, but I like it, it contributes to the tone of the under-painting.

Now that the entire surface is covered in color I'm free to make lose expressive brushstrokes without fear that I'll "miss a spot" and there will be little white spaces showing through.
