Self Portrait - underpainting, day 3 - FINISHED!

Just finished the underpainting, so I wanted to post it so I can start the second pass this afternoon. Not super happy with it, but I'll fix it up in the second pass.

The problem I find with underpainting is that I get so excited about doing the second pass that I start slopping paint down to get the underpainting over with, which kind of defeats the purpose of doing the underpainting in the first place...

you are doing a great job. man, that second pass is going to feel great. i totally know what you mean about rushing through the underpainting...i do that, or i do the opposite and try to make it look like the second pass, even though i know it is the first one....fist shake.
