Painting in the "selective start method", coined by Richard Schmid, is quite a challenge. There is no "Block in" of color or value. One starts with a toned background and then finds a spot near the middle and works from that spot outward; each area completed in its own right and then continuing to the next.
I find that a good initial drawing helps.
16x20 oil and graphite on hardboard. Cheers, Derek
