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
