In this painting series I usually show how I go about a painting, but for this one I am adding a bonus section. I'm going to show you a behind the scenes look at how I go about making a scene ready to paint. And then I will paint it.
"Would have loved to see more people in here ....But look at those reflections of light and the shadows."
|This is Franklin's Antwerp Theater bar scene. It does have wonderful lighting and a dynamic feel to it. I loved it when I first saw it and had it in the back of my mind to paint for a while now. Happy to finally get to it!|
When the floor is done I will paint in the refection and sun light. The people in the scene I'm not even going to think about until after I get the windows started.
This photo montage is sort of how it will look when I get this part done.
The next step is to paint the windows in. They are the lightest things in the scene and are
painted in last.
The people in the scene at this point will look pretty much like this.
