Some people have expressed interest in seeing in-progress pics of my paintings.
So here are some … You can see the previous post for extreme close-ups of the final version that show intricate detail and textures > Painting: Half
^ After sketching in some shapes with a pencil, a mix of opaque and translucent pigments were used to create layers and define sections
Below: Texture was added by scraping and indenting the paper and previous paint layers with a pointed tool. Sometimes I use a nail, sometimes a potter’s tool. Something pointed but not too sharp.
Below: Final version – more of the opaque paint added to define shapes & complete the composition.
Watercolours, Graphite Pencil and Acrylics on Paper
Approx 10.5″ x 14″ (about 26.6 cm x 35.5 cm)
