One fine member of our blog family sent me a note to say that they liked seeing the process of a painting I previously did (always love emails from readers PS!). So I thought I'd post another one.
This painting is one I did for my nephew as a birthday gift. It's of Superman, who I obviously do not have any rights to, otherwise I'd be laughing in the bank with the bank manager, and taking cheesy photos of me cutting ribbons to new theme parks I had built with my mountains of money.
Anyway, here is my photo diary of my painting.
|Stage One: the sketching it all out.|
|Stage Two: the under work.|
|Stage Three: allowing it to slowly take form, and coffee staining it for effect.|
|Finally, the Superman painting by Daniel Grant Newton. |
Note: After taking this photo I had to change the copy under 'BREAKING NEWS' to be more child-friendly, but this is essentially what it looks like.
