For this 2D Project I am describing the process of my oil paintings. When starting a piece I use a traditional renaissance technique called Under-Painting, in which a painted drawing is performed in a monochromatic fashion.
Once the Under-Painitng is finished I than apply numerous layers of color with paint mixtures of classified formulas. These formulas create the ideal skin tones while also adding symbolic color.
After the oil has completely dried, another renaissance technique is applied which is called Glazing. Glazing is when oil paint of specific colors are mixed with a medium called Linseed Oil, making the pigment transparent, creating sleek shadows of color in a short amount of time.
