Painting With Oils On A Large Canvas
In this video tutorial, this artist from south Florid shows how you can prepare and paint on a large canvas. Firstly you must sketch out your drawing small scale on a piece of paper. When you are happy with this you scale it up using a grid technique which you must then imitate direct to your canvas. She then goes on to tiscuss creating the drawing in pencil until you’re happy with the composition. This is then where the pigment ‘umber’ is used in a very light shade to start the application of the paint. With the pigment you can create the shaded areas necessary to your painting and will act as a stepping stone for you to confidently work through and eventually finish off your piece. Great video to work from. Have fun.
