Painting makes me feel like a fool sometimes, the moment I thought things were going to be easy, it throws something that challenges me out of my comfort zone. I picked this one cuz it was easy, or so I thought. The details were all so tiny and all in the shadows, yet the centre of focus is deceptively simple.
I recorded a time lapse of me doing it but I stopped recording because all that the lens could capture was my head in its way cuz I am fussing over all the details with a tiny brush.
So I decided to make it a video for the first part of the painting process instead, which is the tonal value underpainting. I elaborated more on the process by narration. If you are interested head here.
