I've had to start a new one because all of the others are still too wet to work on.  If you work on one when it's tacky it will bobble up and look terrible, so I try not to do that.  Dont know if you can see what this is going to be, It will all becorme clearer later.  It's going to be quite a dark picture and talks about social problems of today ish.  This is just underpainted in raw umber and white, no sketch was done to start with because I started with a burnt umber background.  I started at the top and worked my way down with the shapes in white, blending as I went into the raw umber.  This is how I always used to work and I dont know why I've reverted back but there you go. 

Below you will see one that I was working on a couple of weeks back and which almost ended up in the bin because I couldn't get it to look right.  I have waited until it's completely dry and then added some more layers on it, I have also put in some shadows where they should be.  Dont know if I will do any more, watch this space.
