Vincent Van Gogh Self Portrait Master Study With Process

in WORLD OF XPILARlast year

Hi all, today I would like to share a study completed based on the work of the master artist Vincent Van Gogh. I find his art very expressive with excellent use of colours so I thought I could learn a lot by replicating his work. Not only is his portrait very expressive, every colour and stroke he does is full of emotion.

I began like always blocking the main tones of the painting. It is important to cover all the white space. I then started adding details with a smaller brush.

The next steps involved going over the face with another layer but with a greater variety of richer tones. Experimenting with green, purple and orange hues.

The final step I made sure the painting had enough contrast and highlights and added any final details that were previously missing.
