Louie the Dark, Bay Horse - Acrylic painting
Follow progress of Louie's painting
Initial layers of Acrylic paintings start off looking rather untidy whilst all the base layers are laid down. Portraits particularly large sizes like this one, can take a while to define before they start to resemble a lifelike portrayal and multiple layers are applied to create the final outcome.
Now all the base tones are laid down on Louie himself, I can begin applying the fine detail but first I will build up the tonal background, currently showing are the underlayers.
