The Making of My Artwork Sun King
Showing some of the progression steps I did to produce my artwork "Sun King" Oil on Panel 90cm x 60cm
The painting is done in layers. This requires a lot of patience, because a new layer is not started until the previous layer is dry. To help speed up the process I use the medium Liquin (which also adds a gloss to the work). Parts of the painting are "stippled" and then "blended" using a Badger hair brush... the technique has been used by "Dutch Masters" over the years both past and present... patience is the key with this technique, most of my artworks are done over a period of time of about two weeks, although some can take months.
