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!
