Hello Everyone, I thought as it is my first blog post I would show you some of the steps it takes to complete a finished piece of art. What better painting to show you then Esky’s Portrait! I used Liquitex Basics and Heavy Body acrylic paints on a Fredrix Belgian Linen Nature Core Paint Board with a airbrushed background. (This was my first attempt at using the airbrush for a background and I’m quite happy with it!) Its always is nice to have a nice smooth surface to work on if you want to use an airbrush and get fine detail. Here are a few in progress shots of Esky’s Portrait. I spent around 10 hours on this painting and as you will soon see some of the early stages are a bit scary!
There it is!!! A little insight of the layers and stages it is needed to complete a artwork. To get a nice end result you have to push through those ugly stages!
Thanks reading my first blog post.
