Traditional Oil Painting from a Still-Life
We started with a brown under-painting, then the shadows and a sketch with dark brown washes (that's when we sighted for accurate angles and proportions). After laying in thick, pasty mid-tones (mixed with lots of white) we got to do that soft blending thing oil paints do so well! Then we mixed glazes for translucent color or value changes, and added sparkly white highlights in the end.
