oil on panel
Study your subject matter
Plan your composition and placement of objects.
Develop your painting with color and value.
Work thin to thick using big brushes first and then going down to smaller brushes, saving detail for last.
Work from loose to tight. Start with broad large strokes and big color areas.
Correct and refine your major elements as you go.
Step away from your painting frequently to think and look at other things. It will rest your mind and your eyes.
