Operation game – Work in Progress

Day 1

Operation, WIP, 30 x 40

I had a request to create a painting of the board game ‘Operation’.  I decided to post the images of the Work In Progress.

My first step, which I’m not showing, is the drawing on tracing paper. When I’m happy with the drawing I transfer the drawing to the canvas. Then I start blocking in the colors. I like to loosely block in the colors over the entire canvas so I can get a ‘feel’ for the painting and composition.

This is how the painting looks at the end of the first day.
