New Background Progress

I'm being taught some new background painting techniques by my lovely friend Hannah. She, unlike me, knows what she's doing with paint. She's a real professional, and was the subject of my 'Inspired Artist' Panel. Yesterday was multiple passes of two color washes. Hopefully later today we're going to regroup and get more daring. Whitewashing is in the air! In the meantime, here's our progress and a shot of Hannah herself.
