9 x 12 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello
A quick study done the other day to share my process for painting with a student who was taking a private painting lesson. For oil painting, I use several approaches, but for the most part, especially for flowers, I start with a transparent underpainting to block n the overall composition and shapes then build form and details in a second stage bringing in opaque paints.
I have several short videos on youtube which show the process of how a painting unfolds. You can see what's available by clicking here.
