Painting Demo EO Seated Part 3

Update on "EO, Seated." This is the Color Poster stage. This stage of the painting I have the hardest time with. Even though I've done it so many times that I know it will work out well, the dramatic change and weird color noise until the end of the session make it very difficult to follow through. Sometimes this is called "the Uglies."

I wanted to show the real process I use for the "real" gallery paintings, even though it is frankly long, tedious, and a lot like watching paint dry. But it's the real thing, without the bang-zoom of alla prima. And I know I wished for this sort of thing when I was starting out, so I hope it helps somebody out.

Oh, and if you like the music, please subscribe to my music channel. That would be swell.

Figure Painting Video Demo, Part 1 & 2

I'm gearing up to do a full-length video demonstration. To practice, thought I'd put out a longer video by documenting a more detailed painting in parts. The total will be about 45 minutes of video at 8-16x speed.

Here's parts 1 and 2 of "EO, Seated." The music for part 2 was generously donated by The Kevin Trudo. Please go download a song or two at http://thekevintrudo.bandcamp.com. I'd really appreciate it. :-)
