Arts and Crafts Time!
On this page I will be sharing my non costume related artwork, and any crafts I happen to be working on.
I decided that it was time to learn how to do oil paintings. My good friend Lindsay, who is an excellent art teacher, agreed to teach me the proper techniques for working in this medium. For the subject matter, I chose the Lord Ganesha, the remover of obstacles. Using Renaissance techniques, I first did a grey scale under-painting in acrylics, followed by a layer of oils in complementary colors, and then the final colors. The final oil painting has great warmth and depth because of this technique.
