Step by step tutorial.... Stage..5 by 

Am working on some details now…This is where i start sharpening up different areas….
I use a carbon pencil for very deep blacks…
And Carbon Black Acrylic paint….
I am brushing over and mixing the paint with the charcoal and carbon….The acrylic is thinned heavily with clean water…By glazing and blending, all mediums react beautifully with each other….I am a stand -up artist so my hands do not need to rest on the canvas…This prevents any unwanted smudging…
Painting and drawing while your hand is not supported takes practice…and patience….

    the shading and darkarea are making it all so clear now it seems to mix upso smooyhly How many washes do you do? LIZ

  • Hi lovely Liz..Thanx for following..
    I keep glazing with the acrylic until I feel tones and contrasts are at a nice balance…I just keep the washes thin..This gives me complete control….xx
