Paintings in process

I made some progress in the last week and a half. Got two paintings transferred to board, and acrylic underpainting blocked in. I also got the first layers of oil paint blocked in. The Malibou Mermaid Barbie painting is a commission. I got the body color blocked in for the cliffs and sea. Next week, after that layer dries, I can put in whitecaps, waves, and highlights on the rocks.


  1. Thanks for sharing UR process. How many layers do U expect to have?

  2. Hi Dave, usually 2 to three oil layers over the acrylic. With the background, no more than 2
