The progress for my new painting "Broken"
|Sketch for my new painting "Broken"|
|I started by underpainting the 18 x 36 inch gallery stretched canvas with burnt sienna. This eliminates the harsh, intimidating white canvas and allows you to paint freely without worrying about ‘filling in’ the white. Then I blocked in the shapes of the figure with the same color.|
|I then painted the background first and then I focused on adding the figure.|
|This is when I started to add the highlights and the details.|
