And then I painted on a primed canvas I had laying about...

After doing my test sketch, I grabbed a canvas I had already primed (20 x 16 inches) and went to town. The only real difference is that I did a layer of underpainting using cadmium yellow medium hue mixed with titanium white. I'm not sure whether I went 50%-50% or if I mixed in more white than yellow! Before applying the underpainting to the canvas, I used the mix to sketch out the elements of the painting. Things got a little tricky as I filled in most of the space, but it worked out okay in the end.
