This will be a painting study of a white hanging drape (pillowcase) set at an angle, with a strong light source. I will keep the drape hanging until the completion of the preliminary drawing and painting, so that the creases and folds will remain the same.
Now for a preliminary drawing, but first, a compositional grid:
I begin the drawing in graphite and use the gridlines to help place the drape.
Continue working on the drape, this is 1 1/2 hours of work, and will need some value finishing, but basically the drawing is there, definition of value and shape.
To come: preparation of a burnt sienna ground on the canvas, and an underpainting in burnt umber.
