"Above Big Sur" 
A step by step from study to studio painting

 Step 1

The first step is the block in with transparent washes 
of similar colors to the finished painting,  keeping in
mind the values that must be established.  The white 
of the linen will serve as my lightest value and the 
darkest value will be the forground bush on the left.

Hint: completely covering the canvas with paint 
during this stage will give you a better chance
 at nailing down your value.
