LOVE YOUR BACKGROUND COLOR PAINT AND USE IT

(PP. 44 Crime Scene 5 - Video) 


Hi there!  This is a public post that refers to Tier 1. Art Supporter and Tier 2. Art Producer. Subscribe to the first tier to have a more extensive description of the artwork, else to Tier 2 to know and self practice the technical procedures I used in it. Subscribe to Tier 3. Art Coach and we, together, can apply these techniques to your own art project. It’d be great and fun.

A previous question. As a painter, do you first paint the background color and then you inscribe the figure(s) in it? If you do so, always keep in mind to use the background color in the final solution of your paint. 

To exemplify this, I added the following artwork video (2.5 mins):

Title: Crime Scene 5 

Artist: Veronica Huacuja 

Medium: Digital Painting

Year: 2020

Educational objectives. Getting to know the great advantages of using the background color in the final solution of a painting.   

Material. Digital tablet (I use and recommend one with hand pressure sensitivity) and Photoshop.

My experience doing this artwork. If you first paint your general background color, you have two good advantages: 

1st. advantage. The figure(s) are naturally inscribed in the color environment of the artwork. 

2nd. advantage. It's easier to see how the colors of the figure(s) match with the background color during its procedures. In case you do the opposite, you'll have an extra problem to solve, which is to match the background with the figures. 

On the other hand, in the video watch how the green background color takes part in the final solution of the face. How I managed this? This color takes place in the shadows of the face. 

A comment regarding the topic of the artwork. I have always been concerned with forensic art, the physical changes that human body suffers after losing life, and, among other topics, the probable astonishment, strangeness and absurdity that a person might experience while facing its death. And I add, a tragic death. 

To know more details of the painting procedures of this artwork, or to practice with me to increase your art abilities, I invite you to suscribe to the cited tiers. Besides all the benefits that they offer you'll have access to the layered Photoshop file with my personal comments, and also the open disposition to establish a dialogue regarding the work.
