Triptych-Work in Progress

I'm taking a posting break from my Summer Skies project to post a work in progress. Again this year I've been asked to exhibit a large piece at the Albuquerque Museum Miniatures & More show. I'm painting a large triptych piece- it will be approximately 3' x 5' framed!Here's the sketch.

Here's a series of images of the underpainting. At this stage I like to put the panels in the frame (which is raw and unfinished at this stage too!) because it helps to insure that the image flows seamlessly from panel to panel.

Next, I'll take the panels out of the frame, tweak the underpainting, and start the finish.

Thanks everyone! As soon as the underpainting is dry, I'll be diving back into it.
