This challenge from Leslie Saeta  was to post the my process of painting.  I never sketch my images I basically start to paint.

1.  I start out just blocking in the whole shape of whatever I am painting using the middle tone but in this case just painted in some white to fill in the shape

2. next I start to fill in the areas with various tones.  Since this is a black and white I use Mars Black, Titanium White.

3.  Finally I start to soften all the tones and added a dew drop.  Probably blend a bit more but for now this is it.
