Underpainting Taurus:
This Technique is very intensive .
First, I made and Hardboard Grey (with Acryl Paint). (you call that the Middle Tone)

After drying, I made with a pencil the first lines, the Bull, the Landscape and the Moon, the gras and little rabbit and cat.

Underpainting with Oil Paint:
I always start with the Lights in an underpaint , I paint that with Titan White.. It is not transparant… After this project, Yes…about a month…

I start with the dark in this painting, I use for shadows Raw Omber, I mix it with a little white (Zink white is transparant) to make it lighter . All the dark spots get that brown.

After drying… yes again two our three weeks…

I can give it transparent glacis colours.
When its finished.. I think about 6 months, I Show you the results…

Hi , my name is Ien, I like art and I am creative on so many ways. I make paintings for more than 10 years, use my fantasy and paint realistic.

Walking in Forest and Nature Area, give me inspiration to Paint. I also like it to make photos about the little things I see in Nature.

I love Nature and go for long walks with my doggy Cathy. Making macro photos of flowers and Butterflies is my passion.

    Geweldig mooi schilderij Ienemientje en het poesje erin vind ik juist heel schattig!
    Kusje je Zusje ;)

  • Dank je wel joke en heb je het konijntje ook al ontdekt? Silvan wilde een Stier bij volle maan op een heuvel met een poesje en konijntje :-) Ben zo blij dat alles zover is gelukt. Donderdag begin ik met kleur, Altijd weer spannend om te zien wat voor effect dat weer heeft.
