Once I have come up with an idea for a painting. I set up all my paints and set up the canvas. I usually do a quick outline, to place the figures or items on the canvas.
I use solid, dark colors. The lighter colors are then layered on top. Notice the lines down the figures. This is for reference when I start adding detail.
Next, I layer multiple colors to the backgrounds to create texture. I add in the shadows and highlights. I then start adding in detail to the figures. Finally, I add color to the faces and any small highlights. Here is the finished painting. Hope you enjoy it!
