Drawing: More painting


I’ve been working hard yesterday and today painting for drawing. ???

The colours are not quite right due to my photography skills or lack thereof. They are paler than this in reality.

I’m really happy I can see the letters through the paint. I spent much time last night painting them on in modelling compound.

Just have to apply the oil pastels and its done (I hope).

  1. How did you get the letters to stick out? It looks epic…

    • I used a modelling compound, which I mixed 50/50 with gel medium and some colour (blue and orange) and then just used a brush and painted them on, one by one. Took a very long time. 🙂
      I wasn’t sure it would work, but once I started to put the other colour over the top and I could see the letters, I was very relieved.
