Step by step demonstration of of how I paint Mr Gregoire.
I painted him wearing Yoruba native.
Every oil on canvas painting starts with preparing the canvas and making a proper coating of the painting canvas.
For me I use Emotion paint missed with Top bond to coat the surface of my canvas and wait for it to dry.
Once the canvas coat is dry then I proceed to sketch.
I sketch with pencil or charcoal pencil then outline with color.
Often times I like to miss my color on the color pallet before I proceed to painting.
I start with blocking the shades to define the forms on the face.
