I painted a small sketch of this a while ago and decided to do a larger version for class next week. I usually find that scaling up a painting isn’t as straightforward as you’d think. The washes behave differently and you have to alter your technique to handle the larger areas. But this time it worked out – I think we’ll have a blast doing this on Tuesday.
Edit: The following videos are a short timelapse of the painting and the full 1hr 30min demo with me burbling alongside.
