For the record, I’m a terrible painter. Maybe not really terrible, but mediocre at best. I’m pretty sure my paintings could be the work of a small child. My good friend says they’re folky. Sounds better than what I’ve been saying… Lol.
Anyway, I started with a canvas and a randomly selected colored pencil. I spent about 2 minutes sketching out a roughly dog-shaped form, a few background details, and then set to work.
The first thing I did was paint in the large areas with solid colors.
It took two layers of paint to get even coverage but then I started adding details – in this case, bold outlines.
(sorry. That photo has awful lighting)
It still looks pretty flat and dull, but I slowly added more detail and depth, added bits of other colors, and I ended up with this.
And you know? I’m pretty freaking happy with how it turned out. Sure, it’s not perfect, and a kid could probably do better, but I like it.
