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)
Also usually need some live modeling from Tim…
Refining the sketch…
Painting everything in black and white only to “set values”
Adding first collage elements and color (plus fixing some elements).
And more… teal and zig zags eventually gets covered up.
And after the edition of lots of white and lots of fun scribbles from the kids, FINISHED!!
