Red Riding Hood WIP

New painting time! Spent about 7 hours today working the underpainting up from the drawing. This subject is actually a rehash of a painting I never completed in 2010, and suffice to say I'm digging this composition much better than how I approached it in college! The same basic elements are there, but the composition has changed drastically.

And yes, another oval piece! This was going to be a vertical rectangular piece, but I decided that the flow would work really nicely on another shape, thus, the oval! I sized it at 16" x 20" to fit a wonderful ornate oval frame I bought a few months ago that's been sitting, staring at me to be used ever since. Can't wait to finish this baby.
