Abstract Bag 2 WIP

I snuck in some time yesterday for the second abstract square. I decided to do an underpainting in Caran D'Ache Neocolors II since if I do one of these large, the neocolors will come in real handy and I wanted to test how I might work with them.

The light is coming through the paper bag and creating a strange glow of colors underneath darker colors. To get that feeling I started with an underpainting for the bag of those lighter saturated colors you see popping through. So the overall underpainting is lighter than the end drawing will be.

I have started putting layers of darker dry colored pencil on the top of the bag.
