In this video I show the colors on my palette, and lay down the first layer of paint in simple shapes and minimal modeling, also known as the "block-in."

My colors (which I don't always lay out)
• Alizarin Crimson
• Cadmium Red
• Cadmium Orange
• Cadmium Yellow
• Yellow Ochre
• Titanium (or flake) White
• Radiant Blue
• Manganese Blue
• Cobalt Turquoise
• Radiant Green
• Ultramarine Blue
• Pthalo Turquoise
• Viridian
• Burnt Sienna
• Burnt Umber
And also Gamblin's Solvent-Free Gel.

I mostly used a Rosemary mongoose long flat brush, and a Trekell hog bristle flat to start this painting.
