Most recent stuff

Yesterday I decided to dive into a gouache painting because I think that's a great way how to train for a bigger paintings in oils (Because you can paint opaquely as oppose to classic watercolours). Setup is pretty quick since it's a water soluble medium. I found a beautiful photograph of Christopher Waltz from Inglorious Basterds on the web.

On the following pictures You can see the actual process from initial sketch (drawing is the most difficult part when it comes to capture likeness of a portrait - it took a while - it's not perfect but I think that Christopher "feel" is portrayed - maybe he looks little bit younger :-) ) to the finished study (first picture). I've tried to emphasise many hues in the shadow but not overcome it in spite of the lights areas because that's mainly what the picture is about.

"Christopher Waltz Study" (gouache on watercolour paper A4)

few steps from the process of creating the study
