    Whitaker oil painting step-by-step demo

    Whenever I give a workshop, I always do a demonstration. A friend of mine took photos during my last teaching session and I thought they formed a series that could be useful to some of you. I’ve assembled nineteen step-by-step images and posted them here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=83405
    I’ll be working in oil, especially with beginners, at the Insomania workshop.

    Once you see him paint, you will have a clear idea on what is possible with the brush.

    I love it. Beautiful work.
    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    great pic, very solid painting.

    Contrary to the comment above, your work will remain fresh for a millennium, as there's nothing to date it [such as iPhones which will be out of date etc.] its all human qualities - this pose could have been taken from a space opera or from Medieval times equally.


    I had a look at the model photo in your tutorial / making of [excellent btw, thanks] .. I live in the hope that if I keep painting I might have a flesh and blood goddess sit for me too!

    I immediately had an idea of how Id paint this face, quite specific, and totally different from your own superb one above.


    Its interesting to see how different a painting can be based on the same model.. this is how it should be.. I guess any painting is a self portrait to some degree.

    I'm pretty sure he was referring to the fact that the thread is four years old, not that Whitaker's paintings are no longer "fresh"..
