Bananas - Step 2 - Underpainting

Here is where it starts to get fun for me. (Watercolors should be fun after all!)

At this stage I laid down blocks of color I plan to use in the painting. Remember I said I wanted it to be bold?

Right now everything looks intense but as I build up the shadows on the bananas themselves I will be toning down the background. The background shouldn't compete with the main subject.

Now I'm ready to start the final stages and complete this still life. Wish me luck!
