|20 x 16 inches oil on canvas|
To follow up on my last post, thought I would share the first painting from my last sketching session. I picked the drawing I liked the best, then drew a grid over it to help decide the lay out.
From that I sectioned off the area I wanted to redraw on my canvas. Then I did a quick acrylic painting to use as an under painting. For the under painting I used Matisse back ground acrylics they are matte and have more tooth that regular acrylics. When the under paint was totally dry (gave it 24 hours), I finished it in oil. Used Weber water mixable oils starting with brush work then finished with a palette knife for a little more texture.
