|12 x 12 inch Acrylic on canvas|
Thought I would share some of the steps involved in painting this painting. Many people think that a loose style is something created very quickly, just splashing paint around. What is really involved is time and layering.
I first study the subject creating sketches
One usually stands out more than the others, Liked the composition and contrast of this one.
From the sketch I start working a base of color and form.
After the the first layer dries I continue on refining the subject some negative painting and line work.
Again I wait for each layer to dry before refining the subject. This is getting close to the end, a bit more refining, line and a bit of detail. Detail are best saved for the last layer.
Hope you enjoyed seeing the process, plan to share more of this type of process with you soon.
