I had loads of fun doing this portrait. Part of my process is to take photos on my iPhone throughout my painting. This helps me separate the painting from the surrounding studio and let’s me see how it’s progressing…Just a step up from standing back far away from a painting.
As everyone seemed to really enjoy progression of a painting post here is a step by step through this commission.
As I always say, there are points in a painting where if you walked in and looked at it you would wonder if I went to Art college at all but it always comes through at the end and you see where I was going, I hope 🙂
I hope this gives you faith when you are painting and worrying it won’t all work out! You just have to get used to seeing the finished painting in your head!
