Three Bears Final and Process
I always find that the most difficult part of working on any piece is creating the "final drawing" that comes after the thumbnails and before the final painting. It always seems to take me forever to get this part done. The actual painting portion goes much faster. I plan to continue working on the remaining portfolio pieces through the next weeks and beyond.
Below are some shots I took as I worked on the piece:
I always start with a warm wash in acrylic -- quinacridone gold or raw or burnt sienna on primed canvas. Then I lay in washes of the base colors for each section/character.
Caran d'ache crayons.
I'll now be off to start my next piece ...
