In this lesson I’ll be giving you a look at a part of my process working on my own paintings (the work I create to exhibit and sell).
I’ll be adding the final touches to one of my miniature skulls.
- I begin by oiling in the dark parts of the painting (applying a thin layer of my oil and solvent mix medium)
- I then look for any shape errors (these are usually minor by the end of the painting)
- Finally, I add more subtle transitions within the shadows, lights and the halftones that connect the two.
