Friday Painting Tomatoes and Glass Process by jermilex Friday Painting Tomatoes and Glass Process by jermilex
I thought I'd incrementally save this morning as I painted to show my process. This was done from a still life model. I start with a very simple sketch to get my proportions. Then I try to block in the main colors I see (I don't do a greyscale first... just right into the final colors and values together). Then I just keep refining to get closer to what I'm actually seeing. This was about an hour's worth of painting this morning.

I highly encourage you to try exercises like this. So fun and helpful for studying light and color.

I tend to forget to do steps 2-3 and go from 1-4, which I think is why I have a hard time at it.

I think that's a common problem actually. we tend to think that diving into the details right away is how to work, but I've found (the hard way) that staying loose at first and finding the colors is far superior (and faster)

I will have to work diligently on it. Maybe one day I will design for Pixar too :) lol though I doubt it. Again thank you for sharing!

Thanks for sharing this! I really love seeing that second step. For some reason when I've tried digital painting thus far I've been too afraid to let myself be messy in the early stages. Now I feel much better about experimenting again. :D

woohoo! Yes, be messy and find the right color. it's totally worth it and a lot more fun to be less exact
