"Bluebonnet Time", demo by William Hagerman
William Hagerman demonstrates his realistic oil painting methods in a free eBook showing a step by step progression of the landscape painting shown above.
Hagerman writes: "My painting method is a layered approach, therefore it is developed in successive stages. After drawing my composition on canvas with thinned paint ...I begin my block-in using full color mixtures starting with the darkest mass first. By starting this way, I find it easier to judge the value relationships between adjacent areas."
