As October comes to a close, here is a small Halloween treat for you. It is a quick painting I made from one of my Daily Doodle sketches. I liked experimenting with painting right on top of a heavy texture. Enjoy!
Here is a bit of an explanation behind the making of my “Tough Teddy” painting, which I posted as a video earlier this week.
My traditional painting process is a lot like my digital work in that I like to experiment. As a result, a lot of my traditional paintings are done with mixed media. I like the interaction of the different materials and being able to use each of their advantages to create a one single great image. In the making of this painting, I used a whole mess of stuff, including gouache, oil, colored pencil, and acrylic.
In this post, I’ll explain which media I used and why, and hopefully you’ll be inspired to do a little experimenting yourself. Happy Painting!
