Oil on Canvas
I've been getting some questions about my technique, so I took some stills of the progress of the painting.
|Next, I sketch in the large shapes using vine charcoal.|
|Once my sketch is complete, I start blocking in with paint thinned with Gamsol. This is my underpainting. I use it to work out my shapes and values early on.|
|I then start adding in my paint layers...still working with slightly thinned down paint.|
|I changed my horizon line and started adding in more and more detail switching over to oils with Walnut Oil (Gamblin)|
|Close Up - looking closely you can see some of the peek-a-boo text - look under the awning and in the street signs.|

This piece will be part of my solo show at the Phoenix Village Art Center next year. If you are interested in a print, you can purchase one from my Etsy shop.
