Underpainting a head – a demonstration


image from the underpainting demonstration video

If you have seen my video where I give you an outline for the steps of the oil painting process, this is an example of beginning an underpainting.

I paint this head from a photo, but the process is the same whether you are painting from life or a photograph.

If you liked this demo, it’s a good example of the material included inside my program called Oil Painting Formula, (over 10 hours worth of video demonstrations and instruction) which is included when you become a member of Oil Painting with Ethan.
