“I’d be lucky if I only live till 27” – Sedroc
Unfortunately this time I screwed up, and deleted most of the WIP pictures I took while painting.
I had a lot of fun making this piece, there’s no particular reason I did, but it came as a coincidence that Kurt’s birthday was last month, but still a coincidence, I’ve been wanting to make this one since ancient times and I finally did.
Most people might not realize that over the past weeks I’ve started painting in a whole different way, although the end result might look similar. Usually I approached my paintings going from light to dark, painting all parts of the whole image, and then a darker layer over the whole image… you can see what I’m talking about in the making of David.
This time however you can see, that I began working fully on a specific area of the painting, the eye, and ended up with pretty much the final details, before I move on to the next area, usually I go from one eye, to the other, then the nose, the mouth, then the whole face and ears, and then the neck and chest.
before this I painted the full body, then the hair, and i was done.
