Hi all,

I was hoping some peeps would be friendly enough to post some images of your paintings and the stages during it's creation.

Often I find myself haphazardly slapping paint on the canvas and would love to be more structured about the process. How do you all create such wonderful pieces of artwork? Do you follow your own set of stages? and what are they?

Many thanks in advance, and I am looking forward to seeing how you all do it.

Kind Regards

Hi Ricky.
Here are some of mine, all acrylic.
Avalon Bay WIP (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=203621)
Gold Rose WIP (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=173481)
Rock & Wave WIP (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=186237)
Hope these help.
Larry's demos, WIPs are terrific, make sure you have a look there.

On the first page here, in acylics at the moment there are at least two WIPs I can see.
Go to each page and run a search using the page search function (Hold down control key, and press 'F' key simultaneously - type in WIP) - and you will find them on each page. The regular search on WIP on wet canvas has SO many, it will not accept a search on just 'WIP'.

Jillian

I actually havent had much luck with books. They tend not to help you with the actual strokes and paint mixing so much and they tend to do a step by step where it jumps to drastically for you to see the layers.

Hi all,

Thanks for all the great suggestions. I am gonna have fun looking through all your previous (and current) WIPs. It's good for me to learn from other people this way.

Many thanks again

I never learnt art, I just do it. Adapting as I feel the need to. Thick strokes when I need them, thin when I need thin, etc.
I guess one fairly easy way to learn at least the 'basics' is to actually WATCH someone doing it - videos would be a good choice.
