I begin the painting process by translating the image onto canvas by lightly sketching it in yellow paint, followed by a more detailed under painting which acts as a map for the final painting. During this process, subtle changes naturally occur, as I do not want the painting to look overly photo real; it is important to me that in my paintings you can see it has been hand crafted.
When mixed with a medium, oil becomes even more malleable, and allows me to blend with large, soft brushes, imitating the blurred areas of the photograph I'm working from, these being usually backgrounds. With bigger pieces, this can actually become a very physical and frenzied process, sweeping the paint back and forth in broad strokes until it is sufficiently blended in, wiping away excess paint from the brush each time it leaves the canvas. The more dramatic sections in focus are created using precision brushes, a steady hand, and a lot of patience!
