My Art Process

By Damien Knight

Today  I posted “Portrait of a Woman” a painting I did of a young woman who is dear to my heart. Like all my paintings these days this one was a process. First I took a photo she had and sketched this out like this:

First Sketch

Once I was done sketching I added colour using oil pastel:

Finished colouring important areas on my sketch:

Almost looks better than the painting

I then redrew the sketch onto canvas and painted for the final product. Several of my paintings have been done sketch first.
