Painting a Dog Portrait | Beagle Oil-Painting | Time-Lapse

The process for this painting is a doozy. I used oil paint as my main medium with trace amounts of spike oil.

First: I sketched out Gracie the Beagle onto my gesso board using a charcoal pencil.

2nd: I went outside (ventilation) to spray a layer of fixative over the sketch to allow me to paint on the charcoal without it mixing into my paints and altering the colors.

3rd: I mixed some green acrylic paint and gloss medium and painted over the fixative in 2 coats to give me a good base color to paint over.

If you have any questions about that process, I’d love to do a video on just that topic alone!
