Learn to work out ahead of time how to make a painting, so that you have already solved the major problems you will encounter when you are ready for your brush to hit the paper.
Poppy demonstrates her process, starting with thumbnails; then choosing the most suitable one, then making a full sized drawing and painting it in black and grey. The goal is to make the value sketch as simplified as possible. After assessing the value sketch for weak areas, she will paint the scene again in colour.
Poppy will discuss her thought processes at each step and then will assist students individually as they work through the steps on their own.
