I spent today preparing for this weeks class with Shayla..we each prepared a background to use to paint this horse profile...(i decided i need practice as well and not just for the painting exercise but to create a PDF)..so I took step by step pictures along the way...I have more to place in the PDF
but these are highlights for each segment..
Here is the background...both Shayla and I did one
i sent her home to do the drafting in with pencil...
here is my draft
and here is my draft done enough for me to begin painting washes
I begin laying some undertones...
i used magenta and Jenkins green
several washes of light burnt umber with gloss acrylic glazing
and some hints of raw umber
with a final wash of raw umber with water
and here is the finished head
all products are golden and the substrate is
Cranson Acrylic paper
(a watercolor paper variation..but it is thicker)
