INSIDE THE STUDIO...as it happens! A GODZILLA PAINTING!!!!

 

A blank canvas... and a deadline. Frightening combination!!!!!!! I tend to work upright at an easel... hey, my back likes me lots more in a better posture!!!!

 

After a light drawing-in, I slather on an underpainting of my favorite color "Quinicridrone Gold". Underpainting serves to get rid of the "fear" of a blank canvas, and, it gives a foundation to the rest of the colors to come. And Quin Gold is so transparent, you never lose the drawing underneath. This is roughly an hour into the painting.

 

A DAY LATER........ Looking lots better! I have started to lay in the cooler colors... Godzilla always looks best with a double lighting source on him. Go to the NEXT page and see the finished work!
