YouTube Vlog #9 - Stages of Oil Painting Part V: Final Touches

Today I posted the fifth and final stage in my oil painting creation process on YouTube.  In this stage, I simply put the finishing touches on the figure using some glazes and scumbled highlights.  I also brought the background to a finish using a number of abstract paint application techniques (more glazing, palette knife, impasto, etc.).  Hope you enjoy this final installment of my Stages of Oil Painting vlog series!

YouTube Vlog #8 - Stages of Oil Painting Part IV: 2nd Color

Hi friends,

The next vlog is up!  This is my fourth installment of my Stages of Oil Painting, and this one is on the 2nd painting, or 2nd color stage.  Here, the colors of the figure get a little more specific, and I've expanded my palette from the previous limited "Zorn" palette to include some crimson and some ultramarine blue and some dioxazine purple.  Although, I am using these colors sparingly and keeping the application thin and translucent to allow for some of the 1st color to show through.

Stay tuned for the fifth and final stage coming soon!  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy part IV:
