Master copy step by step – American Artist


From American Artist November issue I am doing a step by step demo, adapting it to my style.
Note: the photo in American Artist was not detailed enough, so I went to Martinez’ site to see the original  painting. In fact in this way I was able to see the color shifts and paint them. In order to paint a realistic portrait detail is necessary.
My copy of Martinez’ self-portrait
On toned canvas, burnt umber sketch. I begin to add color.
a little later: adding light zones and refining

Adding progressively colors I’ve finished
