1 Draw­ing and sil­hou­ette

ImagineFX - - Fantasy -

Af­ter a quick graphite draw­ing of what I want to paint, I go in and de­fine the sil­hou­ette with burnt si­enna and some muted browns and blues. While defin­ing my sil­hou­ette, I de­cide that I want the top por­tion of the fig­ure to be light against a dark back­ground, and dark against light for the bot­tom. To­gether this forms my light/dark pat­tern.

Burnt si­enna makes for in­ter­est­ing ef­fects when it shows through un­der lay­ers of

other colours. This is one rea­son why I pre­fer

to use it ini­tially.

I use a flat brush and fill in

the masses with large brush strokes.
