I thought it might be fun for you to see the stages of creating this modern fairytale portrait painting. I scheduled about a month, at two days per week, to work on this 16″ x 32″ acrylic painting on canvas. To learn more about commissioning a painting, click here. So without further ado:
Stage 1: Drawing using graphite and then Pitt artist pen.
Stage 2: Grisaille in Chromium Oxide Green.
Stage 3: Colour wash. Quinacridone Red, Pthalo Green and Green Gold.
Stage 4: Establish background buildings and sky.
Stage 5: Working on everything but negative space objects.
Stage 6 & 7: Work on the car.
Stage 8: Paint the figures and adjust the background to create proper recession and focus. DONE!
