I recently purchased some nice panels, gesso and matte medium and have been getting to work.
Gessoed and sanded the panels three times to create a smooth surface and begin connecting with them.
They all started with blue grid lines, although I had no intention of using a grid-method to enlarge an image (nice tutorial on that here: How to Use a Grid to Enlarge an Image While Drawing) just wanted to start with some solid right angles.
After the grids I began some underpainting in gouache. Since then I’ve began blocking out some color and will post updates here, Facebook and/or Instagram. I’m looking forward to seeing how things progress, I hope you’re as excited as I am to see what emerges. If you’re looking to purchase art for your walls send me a message as I’m open to commissioned work this fall.
