Apprentice Volume 3 Cover Painting, Part 1

Working on the 3rd volume cover. I’m trying to document this painting start to finish. I have a bad habit of forgetting to film entire sections when I do timelapses.
I don’t usually work this large-all my work is intended for publication initially, so there are benefits to working small. However, I injured my wrist late last year and it’s less painful to move my whole arm while painting.
This is all underpainting. It will be an autumn scene, so much of this drab gray will be covered with bright color later.
Due to my wrist injury, I’m only able to work in short bursts. This is about 4 hours worth of work spread out over several days.
