Underpainting may be deemed as an "unnecessary" first step to your artwork, but it is very essential if you want to get things done right.
Some artists see it as an optional step, but if you want to produce realistic colors and create a believable light source, underpainting is a step you should not miss.
The process is simple, but you'd be surprised on the major effects it can have on the rest of your painting.
For instance, if you want to create an illusion of wintertime coldness in your artwork, a blue toned underpainting is best to apply. Likewise, if you're painting a desert scene, a yellow-red toned underpainting will create the feeling of a warm climate.
Using purple toned underpainting is helpful in creating warm layers or for making shadows.
Choose your paint wisely too for your underpainting. A poor choice in paint can make your overall artwork muddy and unruly. Make sure it is paint that mixes well and has a high pigment load.
