wow, cool to see what gets covered up and what gets left over. Is this the final draft?

Strongly suggests how impossible it is to know another. The figure is large, recognizable, but, in the end, unknowable.

Marie Jost says :
@rottendoubt--you are seeing the correct order of steps. Painters add paint layers, especially when working in oils, to give depth to a work. The underpainting (those layers that get covered up) do show through in a very subtle way. It is a very old technique that goes back to the first use of oil paints in the 16th century in Italy. That is one of the reasons that oil paints are still a preferred medium for painters, the subtlety it lends to color that you do not get with a more opaque paint.
