This is a painting I did fairly recently. It is Oil on panel. It isn’t supposed to reflect any real-world culture or religion. Once again, I’ve painted something that is actually directed at the fantasy crowd. I started with a sketch, transferred that to toned paper and worked in some highlights. I scanned the toned version and printed it and then mounted the print on my panel using acrylic matte medium. I painted in three stages.
Stage 1 involved painting until I was really tired of painting on it.
Stage 2 was taking a break and not working on it.
Stage 3 was looking at some of the artists I admire and thinking about how i could improve what I had done based on what I learned from them.
Stage 4 was doing the things I learned in Stage 3.
Yep, I told you there were three stages, but it was really four.
