This board shows step by step how I created the look of this painting. It was painted in acrylic paints with a pouring medium on canvas.
Step 1: Simple outline with paint to create the shape of Buddha's face.
Step 9: Completed painting.
Step 8: Face is complete, background is nearly finished.
Step 2: Introducing a bit of color to the face.
Step 5: More layers to the face.
Step 7: Face is beginning to look smooth with blended colors and the background is filling up with many different layers of colors.
Step 6: Another few layers to the background. (This look is achieved with a pouring medium and soft bodied acrylics by Liquidex)
Step 3: Adding a bit more of a background layer for the foundation of the face.
Step 4: More color to the face and the first few background layers have been applied.
