Quiet in the Hallway, acrylic painting step by step tutorial
I made the drawing using charcoal on my pre-gessoed canvas.
I am working on the background with very diluted acrylics in citrus colors. I am diluting the paint in water so I can get some textures and drips.
I am a Blick Art Materials affiliate and I receive a small compensation for sales. That does not effect in any way the cost of the purchaser’s order but it helps me keeping the content of this blog free.
I am starting to paint the different elements with contrasting colors.
Working on the vase and flowers with contrasting bright colors.
The vase will be whitish, so I under-paint in black.
Starting to paint with local colors, in a semi translucent way, so the layers underneath will be still visible.
Working on the background wall
The elements are painted in local colors but the painting need more contrast and colors. So I am adding a few highlights in the contours with acrylic paint.
