Hellooo! Gosh it’s been a long time since my last post. I’ve been busy switching this blog (and my portfolio site) over to wordpress.org from wordpress.com. It’s taking literally forever and it’s been a total learning curve! (any questions, just ask!).
I wanted to share a video I made with you. It’s the first video on my new Youtube channel! In the vid, you’ll see the initial sketching and refining stage of a mini painting I made recently.
Before I started recording, I primed my canvas by applying multiple layers of a neutral / green base colour and lightly sanding between each layer. I do this because I’m not a huge fan of the canvasey texture. I prefer a slightly smoother painting surface.
Throughout the vid, you’ll see me sketching out my composition and correcting myself by using the natural base colour as a kind of eraser.
If you have any questions, I’d love to hear them. Ask away in the comments.
