“Ferocious” Painting Process

Just wanted to share some of the behind the scenes process photos of how I create a painting. These are from last year (I was at my parents house in Kansas).

 

A good day of painting always starts for me with some good reference photos and a delicious cup of coffee.

Next comes roughly sketching out an idea – with lots of little scribbly help from the kiddos (an excellent place for them to help since all this gets covered anyway)
