Acrylic process

It tends to happen that when I'm active in one place, another gets neglected. Sorry for the slow updates. This is my process for an Acrylic painting. This particular one is of 'Wild Rose'.


The short version of my process is that I start with a sketch and then tighten it up. The painting is done in very thinned down layers, very much like water color, but the paint stays put when I add another layer. In this, I used color pencil to saturate the purples and reds.

Absolutely amazing! I love your traditional pieces, maybe more than your digital ones, that are truly stunning, anyway!
