The prints of my Eyezon paintings are ready and in the store. Now, since this has been revealed and even printed I thought it might be nice to show off how the whole painting was made. I hope you enjoy it.
2. Next, I take a charcoal or similar piece of drawing tool and rub the backside of the paper. Then place the paper over the desired surface and basically use this as a cheap method to transfer the sketch/drawing onto the canvas.
3. After I transferred the basic line work I take a pencil of a similar color. In this case brown and tidy everything.
4. I forgot to buy some masking film and so I have to use my regular painting tape. It’s a bit more work but works just as well.
5. My aim was to recreate the gradients that can be found in quite a few ukiyo-e prints and in this case the airbrush was a very helpful tool. The spray even added some wonderful texture making the gradient more lively.
6. The last final step in this case was the inking and painting the details with a brush.
