Warm glazes

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Fantasy Workshops -

I ap­ply a num­ber of lay­ers of warm glazes to the paint­ing. To glaze ef­fec­tively I use a small amount of pig­ment mixed with a larger amount of medium to make it thin and trans­par­ent. I in­tend to keep it warmer to­wards the cen­tre, and cooler at the edges.

I leave a lot of the burnt um­ber show­ing through from the un­der­paint­ing, be­cause it’s a pleas­ant grey and plays well with brighter colours. I leave some of the brush strokes show­ing through, to en­sure that there’s a va­ri­ety of tex­tures in the fi­nal piece. Peo­ple usu­ally have more reds at their fin­ger­tips, and I ex­ag­ger­ate that here for ef­fect.
