    Darkdreamer Oil Painting Step by Step

    This was a big one at 40" X 40". Oil on Canvas.

    First I lay down a pencil sketch and rough out the tones with a tin oil wash, then I work in more opaque colours to give dimension to the forms, then finally a thin wash of pure colours to glaze and make the whole thing more vibrant.

    The print you see on the top left of my custom drawing board ( couldn't buy one big enough in the stores ) is a digital version I created in Painter for reference. The black and white prints are from a photo session with an actress/model and the inspirational artworks in the background are by my favorite artists, Boris Vallejo and Frank Frazetta

    Thank you for sharing this!

    There seems to be such a big difference between the last two pictures. Do you use a lot of glazes at this point? It looks as if you repainted another layer with details over the whole picture.

    Thanks for your comments and interest guys; much appreciated!

    Bowlin: Yes, during the glazing I'll add some opaque detailing while the colours are still wet.

    Best wishes,
