Slide Show of a Painting in Progress. By Don Finkeldei: This is a slide show of how I progress through a painting from initial drawing to laying in the paint.
I roughly draw the sketch with loose lines, just laying in the position of all the darker objects and shadows. I then work on laying in the darker passages. In this case, it's the shadow portion of the painting trying get the shadow values in each type of plane correct. Then I move on to completing the planes and objects in the light trying to keep the value relationships between shadow and light. Once I've established the value relationships, the painting goes quickly.
Each individual frame of the slideshow is shown below. The painting isn't finished yet. I'll post the final stages in the future.
