"Sunshine Demo"

You can’t have a great painting without a good drawing. I prefer a contour line drawing, it’s clean and simple, just the basics. I have noticed that the more confident I am about producing an image the fewer details I will draw before beginning a painting.

I then block in colors as broadly as possible.

Later I refine areas with additional colors, details, and texture. Finally, you'll notice in the final painting bellow I add smaller details in the eyes and the brightest highlights.
