Here is my acrilyc test, and i want to get masters advices of what wrong,what good.
I used 0.3 mm Edding office liner EF. This is very-very low prices liners, but i find them good. Here is the result:
Prepearing acril. Three brushes + colors:
+ acryl decelerator
making firsl monochrome layer for tone.
black+Burnt sienna+much water
add red color. And some white color.
I've decide that good time to start meking background.
I did it in two steps :
1 - make all turquoise+black+water
2 - make all turquoise+white- without water.
Looking on it under strange angle.
After step 7 i find my concept is very bored...
Making "as always"...
Well I'm hardly a master, but I'll jump in.
There's not a thing wrong with your technique so far, everything looks really good.
One thing I would recommend. Since you are working so transparently you might try doing a lot more finishing detail to the drawing before you start to paint. Small detail, shading etc could all be worked in with graphite, ink or even colored pencil before that first wash of paint. Then you might find that you have a lot less work to do once you get the painting to the point where you have this one now.
