How long did it take you to paint this?
I can exactly tell you how long I worked on this one, because instead of making photos, I took notes during the painting process. I wanted to know it for myself.
Here we go:
- preparing the panel and finishing it: 2 hours. That's an average, because I prepare several panels at the time.
- Design, photographs, PS + prints: 14 h. Also an estimation, because I
took the photographs a few years back.
- Linedrawing on the panel: 2 h
- Wash over the panel: 1 h
- Grey underpainting: 15 h
- 1st color layer: 30 h
- 2nd color layer: 15 h
How much is that?
It was rather fast, because normally it takes longer. Depending on the subject of course.
