I’m starting a big project that will most likely take me half the year to complete. I like having something big that I can whittle away at. This is the first of a series of studies I plan to do in prep for the big one. I decided to put up a few pics that show my process from drawing to finished. It’s always a little different, but I’ve found that if I take the time to measure, map out, and get a good drawing at the front end, everything else eventually falls into place. This one I decided to paint on a sky/cloud painting I did months ago.
11X14 oil on canvas
Steps 1&2, drawing and skin (I think it looks like he should be manning the Pearly Gates)
Step 3, clothes
Step 4, adjust all the colors.
All done with this one. Maybe I’ll sign it.
More to come like it, and then the biggie.
