3 Build­ing up form

ImagineFX - - Artist Insight Paint From Life -

In this step I work on defin­ing the planes of the model’s head and at­tempt to cre­ate the il­lu­sion of form. I also add the lights that I had pre­vi­ously left can­vas-white, but th­ese are still not as light as I see them on the model. How­ever, I de­cide to leave th­ese for the fi­nal stages.

Th­ese lights are cool, com­pared with the rest of the im­age. I add ac­cents of colour to the por­trait, some of which I’ll re­tain in the fi­nal im­age. I paint with large strokes of the brush, keep­ing in mind the planes of the model’s face.
