Hulk's a popular guy. That's ok though because he's so much fun to work on. This is my largest painting to date at 14 by 18 and it took what felt like an eternity to finish. I don't know if I'm just slow or if that's normal for painting. I had fun though and I think it came out pretty well, so I'll take it. Another tremendous learning experience. Every time I'm feeling like I understand this stuff, I'm given a nice slice of humble pie. Mmmm...my favorite! Valuable lessons learned that will hopefully help me next time.
Some oils are very transparent out of the tube. The purple I used for his pants were like that. I had to add white to it just to make it opaque enough to not look terrible. The first pass over on the pants was TERR-I-BLE. A streaky mess. Looks ok now, but I was sweating a bit on those damn pants. I also discovered mars black on this piece. I'd been using ivory black thinking "what's the difference?" There's a difference. Ivory has that transparency thing going on. Mars is a beautiful deep opaque black that looks wonderful and blends like a dream.
This was a great piece to work on.
