Current WIP

I enjoyed looking at Susan's WIP so thought I might post my current effort. Eventually it should look like the inside of a cafe.

A bit of insight there to your technique, as well. Jump right in and do details. That's how I do ink work. Unfortunately, that is impossible with watercolors, so I've had to painstakingly learn how to color in the whole picture to a degree, then proceed with the details. One of many things I've had to learn.

Are you doing multiple layers of paint or just going straight to the final layer? Your work is so good, I want to learn from you!

How long does a painting like this usually take you? Also what is the size of this canvas?

bbbaldie: I know that the 'proper' way is to paint the whole canvas and work your way up to the smaller details etc. But I prefer to just jump in and get to the point I suppose. I tend to work from top left just so my wrist isn't over wet paint. But sometimes I just see a particular bit that I want to do and jump to that. Sometimes it just depends on what paints I have on my palette at the time. Some technique eh?

Hi Terry: Thanks for the compliment.

I do use multiple layers, lots of liquin so they dry quickly. I tend to do most of my mixing directly on the canvas rather than the palette. This canvas is 16" x 20".

I'm really interested to see how your street scene comes along.

It's perfect, as far as I'm concerned. On portraits, I always start with the face. If I bleep up the face, what's the point of continuing? Once I get the face 90% done, and I know it's working, then I'll start in on clothing, background, etc.

I know what you mean. The first self portrait I ever did while in high school, I completed my left eye down to the nth degree before even roughing in anything else. It ended up ok though, except that I'd put the eye in the wrong place on the canvas so I barely had room to get the back of my head in.
