start to finish. this is an oil painting i've been working on for the last few weeks. i took pictures as i went along. i always mean to but usually don't have my camera charged when i need it. it's a little peek at how my oil paintings come along.

Thanks for showing your stages, that's awesome. Do you use pencil to put your image onto the canvas first? Wonderful colours at the very end!

Thank you:) yeah I almost always start with a light graphite sketch then go over that with a medium brown paint and a fine liner brush before I start adding color. Erasing all the original graphite is key. If I don't it always ends up polluting the paler colors.

It is incredible to see the transformation in these photos - the second last photo looks amazing (I thought that was the finished product) and then you see the FINAL photo and realise you could make it even better! I agree with Sandy above, the colours at the very end are just wonderful - they really 'pop'. You are crazy talented - just amazing! I adore your work.
