No worries - I was referring to the current backlog.


Mind you I also have some 3 d figures that go back 35 years so plenty to catch up on.

Yes, this is quite fascinating, speaking as someone who has far too much to paint and too little time based on his current approach. 


I have pondered trying to complete a figure in a day this would certainly assist in that process without having to use a crock pot or light bulb to speed drying.  Given the results are outstanding no down side other than I might eventually run out of flats to paint...

The two next steps consist in adding intensity in lights and shadows

I now let the paint dry a little and tomorrow I will work on some details and maybe the last lights, shadows and cast shadows


Once again this way is possible with oil and working wet on wet; it is rather fast, about 1.45 hour of painting


I wonder how I will paint the little dog ...

After man and woman, now the horse


[ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]


The first step is shown on this picture; after having covered the all figure with the basic tone (here a mix of yellow ochre and cadmium yellow) I take of the paint with a wet brush everywhere the highlights must come
It necessitates a little reflexion to choose the right places but when you have done it it becomes very simple


Second step consists in filling the empty places with white+cdmium yellow for the first highlights

Third step : smoothing the paint with a dry brush; I do that between each step to avoid harsh lines


[ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]


Fourth step basic color on head and legs : burnt sienna

Fifth : first shadows with burnt sienna

Sixth : second highlights : white+ naples yellow
