Hi, I'm just a beginner at painting but recently i was reading a graphic novel and fell in love with panel with the joker from batman in it and decided would love to blow it up and paint it on to canvas. I have a very steady hand and have always been a good sketcher so I have no problem with the shapes its just using colours and painting and oil or acrylic or whether or not i need primer!
to give you an example of the type of colour pallette Ive found the shot that I want to replicate. Its likely that I will be using the grid technique or maybe printing it large than tracing it.
I know its not exactly original! but as just a lowly beginner Id love some expert advice!
