Obi, started

 I am always happy to start another Swissy, and Obi is one who always seems to be wearing a cheeky grin. What a fun face to paint!

In starting the underpainting, I was planning to just throw on a light wash of paint to map out the lines and colors, but I ended up spending hours and really having fun with it. This is not the traditional underpainting; but, as I’ve said before, each painting seems to have its own unique process. I’m just here to apply the paint.
