Time to start paint­ing

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

I have many meth­ods for start­ing on an im­age and this is what keeps my pas­sion go­ing. Try­ing new things, me­dia and tech­niques is a way to learn while main­tain­ing my lev­els of cre­ativ­ity. Fol­low­ing the same paint­ing process time af­ter time will get bor­ing, and re­duce your ca­pac­ity for orig­i­nal thought and ideas. This is es­pe­cially so if you paint and draw for eight hours or more a day, for many years! In this case I start paint­ing on one can­vas, with no lay­ers, us­ing yel­lows and reds (warm colours) for the light and blues, and cold greens and grey­ish pur­ples (cold colours) for the shad­ows. By do­ing this I’m set­ting up my light­ing scheme.
