I'm kinda digging this new (for me) technique. I began with an under-painting of sepia water color. Then I applied two coats of acrylic matte medium, and then painted with thinned-down oils. Oil paint rocks!
Thing is, I don't know if I'm going to be able to use this technique for the whole book. Takes too long, at least for me because I've never used this technique before. I need to have this entire book painted by January (providing I get approval to begin in the next couple weeks). I may use an altered version of this technique, doing less oil work. We'll see.
I may have to return to what I'm most familiar with, acrylic paint on Canson paper.
This photo is weird. Kinda looks like Ron is looking at me while I paint him.
