Illustration Friday: Layers
As I near completion of my yearlong project of producing work and a new website, I have had few chances to participate in anything else, which accounts for my lack of posts. However, I'm still lurking in the shadows and, every once in awhile, I have something to contribute.
Instead, I felt that it would be appropriate for the "Layers" topic, as this is at the very core of my process.
First, I start with a pencil drawing over a layer of gesso. Next, I add a layer of clear matte spray paint. Then, there is a layer of thinned oil paint (umber, ultramarine blue, and aluzirian crimson). Finally, there are several layers of colored pencil.
