    Step-by-step Painting

    Hi Everyone,
    Here is one of the step-by-step demos from my book. It is a bit simplified and not quite as tight as I usually work, but it will still give you an idea about the layering and process. Unlike my other stuff this one has no color pencil or acrylic in it at all, it is only watercolor. To get a more opaque quality at times, I mix the watercolor with Dr. Martins Bleed-Proof White.

    Very rarely. Gouache is a bit too chalky for me and dries a different color than what is put down. Occasionally I'll use a dab with the watercolors to get a bit more opaque. Using the Dr. Martins Bleed-Proof white in combination with the watercolor creates a gouache-like medium that I feel more comfortable working with.

    Glad you could share your process man. Did you use the dr martin white to go over places. Like what did you do for mistakes and the fire going over the background etc.

    Yes, I use the Dr. M White when I need to pop darker areas. The fire is a good example, along with the halo behind her head to pop the hair, highlights, smoke, etc...

    Thanks for sharing this, Tom. I like how you use a lot of greys and build up your saturation. Hope to see your stuff this fall in Atlanta.

    Hmm, looking in the support forum, there seems to be a bug with the thumbnail generation. That's what I guess is happening here. Normally you should have a thumbnail since you attached an image in your first post.

    Really awesome step by step, btw
