Sub­tle cool lay­ers

ImagineFX - - Fantasy Workshops -

Be­cause I want this paint­ing to be pre­dom­i­nantly warm, my cools are sub­dued. It’s im­por­tant to let an im­age be ei­ther more cool or more warm. This au­to­mat­i­cally gives the im­age a tan­gi­ble mood. Choos­ing to sit on the fence will please no one..

I let some of the glazes drip so they sit at the crevices made by dry paint. This pushes the il­lu­sion of skin folds on the hand. I add greens and blues to the veins of the hands. I also use blues at the edges of the forms to di­rect the viewer’s at­ten­tion.
