I loved working on this recent commission. I can't show the whole piece but the plate of yummy looking stuff, I can show and what I love to show is the process or stages of its progress getting painted.
|Stage 1: I started with a flat fleshy colour and started to work on the highlights lit from above. I did this by working up layers, getting progressively lighter and greyer.|
|Stage 2: After the light parts were done and some blending had been carried out, I worked on the shadows in grey blues. I did this on the pigs head first to test the colours before rolling it out to the rest of the platter.|
|Stage 3: Happy with the colours, I painted the rest of the fleshy things across the board.|
Tasty stuff right!?
