A week or so ago I blogged about the fact that the Grand Bohemian Gallery which represents my work in Orlando, Asheville, Savannah and Taos, had asked me to do a series of peacock heads for them.
I have made some progress with the stages prior to collage and wanted to share this process with you.
- Sketching on sanded wood panel primed with either Golden GAC-100 or Liquitex Clear Gesso
- Painting backgrounds with drips and spots that are interesting and colorful, these painted backgrounds will stay behind the collaged peacocks
- Under-painting the peacocks to prepare for collage on top
