Underpainting for "A Beautiful Poisen”

Here is a shot of an under painting of an almost finished painting called 
"A Beautiful Poisen."  I started this one a while back and it is almost finished! 
Here you can see the white egg tempera underpainting on the red earth ground.  This is the early first layer stage of the painting that will provide the foundation for the colors.  Sorry for the awful photo w/ the shadow.
