|8" x 8" WIP|
Still Using Acrylics here to get more detail before beginning to finish in oils tomorrow.
This 8" x 8" WIP has more definition now than it did yesterday. I took out the foreground tomato slice today; still using acrylics but will begin in oils for the next stage and the completion of the painting.
I hope you enjoy seeing the stages of how the paintings develop and the changes I make along the way. I enjoy sharing and hope it helps young (or mature) emerging artists as a teaching tool. Some artists prefer to sketch everything out in detail before the begin the actual painting; and that is fine, if you prefer to do it that way. I like the freedom of developing the painting as I go and it gives it more of a fresh feel and approach for me. One can, of course, call my reference photos my "sketch".
