This painting was done for a client a while ago and finally got the approval to post it. It was a lot of fun creating this painting from beginning to end. This painting is completely opposite to what I usually paint but I like being challenged and I feel this was a great challenge.
I started with a sketch with what I thought the client was looking for.
After sending the original picture to the client, I made revisions to the hair and thorns.
Then made more revisions to the thorns, in the other picture she started appearing more like the statue of liberty.
Once the drawing phase is approved I went straight to the portrait and started carving out the forms.
I continued all the way to the arms and chest area, sending pictures of each stage to the client making sure they approve.
Then I added the shirt and blood to the figure which were the finishing touches.
Thanks for stopping and viewing, hope you enjoyed!
Hi everyone I've started my online Alla Prima painting course! I show how I make my alla prima paintings in such short period of time by breaking it down in easy steps. This method of painting can be applied to still lifes, portraits, and plein air paintings. The first lesson will be an introduction to learning how to handle the brush and paints, after the first lesson the subjects get a bit more intricate in composition, color and shapes. The second lesson I offer is how to paint "Pink Roses" in an alla prima manner.
If you're interested please email me to receive more information about this course at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
The concept of this blog is to showcase the passion I have for drawing and painting. I like to mainly work in oils and ball point pen. I love drawing in my sketchbook every second I can, and I look forward to spending long hours in front of a canvas. The more I practice the more I come closer to understanding the world of drawing and painting. I hope this blog shows the dedication and love I have for making art.
