A preliminary #drawing I started and thought I’d #share. As you can see I #paint from a composite #painting I did on my iPad last night. Using a proportional divider to plot points and get some accuracy in my drawing. The background was painted a couple of weeks ago on a 18x24in. ampersand panel with some leftover paint when cleaning my pallet. So the color is completely random. After a very angular drawing in place, I start blocking in some dark shadow areas.
Drawing this morning I realized the figure in this composition needed #wings. I think only having one figure with wings will add to the narrative. Now that I’m #painting larger I’m doing more full figure and now multiple figures. The wings are from a really good video tutorial I purchased on Deviantart by Yuchen Ghong Art I will probably add them to my iPad #drawing so I can play around with the #color
Blocking in color. I’m using #genevapaints from Mark Carder Studio. The wings were #painted using warm white from Graham oil paints with some Neo M
Started session two of this painting by concentrating on the two faces. This is a detail of one of them. I will post the full image tomorrow. Which is an 18×24 inch wood panel. I work on the faces early on because they will be the focus of the painting and contain the most detail.
The story so far… This is after the second session. The panel was dry when I started. It might not look like much progress was made. Most of the 3 to 4 hours
