Many artists overlook or are unaware of the advantages of underpainting. Whether modern or ancient, the professional artist seldom failed to prepare the painting ground. Underpainting with a proper foundation not only provides a barrier between oil painting and primed surface, but will greatly enhance the full and lasting qualities of color.
Holbein Foundation Colors may be used to build a foundation through application of rough but thin layers and may be used to prepare excellent impasto surfaces. Thick application should be avoided as it may lessen the adhesion qualities of the finished painting.
