How did you learn to paint?
Doing these painting marathons make me learn a lot faster simply because I have to work four to six hours every day without stopping. It's like exercise, if you do it regularly you will see improvement.
These are the steps to creating this painting. I used a digital projector to enlarge the photograph onto the gesso board, then I drew the basic lines with a pencil. The first coat is roughed in quickly with a lot of loose color, then I spend the next 3 or 4 hours adding detail with smaller brushes.
