if video doesn’t play click in the time-line this is layer four which i stopped at for this demo. however you can use as many layers as you want, if I’m doing a very finished painting then I would no doubt use many more In layer 3 i simply applied a warm glaze & made some adjustment to the eyes colors and mediums used – same as for the underpainting color layer + cadmium orange (you don’t necessarily need to use any colors other than the basic 4 that i mention, but use others if you want). If you’d like to copy this painting for learning purposes that’s fine part 1/3 www.youtube.com part 2/3 www.youtube.com image homepage.ntlworld.com website www.mniland.com
I filmed this late one night so you may need to turn the volume up to hear me…. just a suggestion : ) The subject for the first painting is the awesomely amazingly superly talented Butch Walker. You can also hear his song “Mixtape” playing during the pictures. The last two paintings are my reproductions of Sandro Botticelli’s “Portrait of a Young Woman” and Jan Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring.” Hope you guys enjoyed. Thanks for watching!
