I've sort of made a photo story as I'm moving along with this commission. I'm trying to remember to take a picture before moving on the the next phase, and it really makes me THINK about what I am doing! This gentleman is Dave Patterson, who lives near Aukland, New Zealand. His daughter has commissioned this painting.
Click on each photo for details about how I did each step in the process.
As much as I am excited to get painting, I want to be sure my drawing is as detailed as I can get it before applying the paint. (There is nothing more frustrating than trying to fix a drawing once you've started painting ---There are workshops for that! :)
To be CONTINUED.....
I think it is important to share our process with others, just as we gain from watching other artists work.
