After my hiatus from painting for 2 years (ugh) I wanted to share my recent commission. Since working on this one I think I have a firmer grasp on how I want to proceed with future paintings. Some of the reasons I quit using oils was the cost involved and the number of canvases I wasted on half-baked ideas. So I will be doing digital concept sketches for each painting before I even get my brushes wet. This sounds like a “no duh” type thing but for some reason it just never occurred to me.
