He uses five steps in this painting: placement, value, color, modeling and consolidation. Below is an example of the value stage or underpainting with transparent oxide red mixed with ultramarine blue.  His underpaintings were pretty without the color added.

At his next workshop I will try to capture his complete process.  Looking forward to it!!
