The Revenge of Cuccos
I started with sketches in Photoshop, it is my go-to method to start my painting because it is just so much quicker and easier to adjust composition and add details.I printed it out after I was happy with the sketch, and then transferred to watercolor paper with a lightbox, I used a green color pencil instead of a regular pencil because it was less likely to be smeared and it blend in easily with the painting.
I started with background first and moved onto other area slowly.
I tried adding details and finished a small section one at a time instead of laying down general color to the entire piece and add shadows and details later.
I found it more manageable this way and I wouldn’t forget small details and sections. It was quite interesting mixing all these green colors. I don’t use a lot of greens in my palette regularly, it was fresh to see how many different shades of green I could create by mixing different colors in.
I still have problem with showing depth of field and defining value, but overall I am happy how this turned out :]
