Colour Concept Painting

Before I start working on the clean-up I often do a speed painting. And then from that I "extract" the colour palette for the final piece. Just now I'm working on the final line work of this large poster sujet... I'll will post the finished piece sometime soon.


  1. What a perfect flow and composition!

  2. Beautiful!
    How do you turn B&W into color(stage 1 to 2)?

  3. Martin! :) THANKS!

    Kenji, cheers! Btw, I started with image #2. #1 is just a monochrome version of the painting in the middle. #3 is a blend of #1 and #2.

    Luispa! Thank you!

    Omar, hahaha, that proves that you don't know me. I guess I'm more like a monkey with a Wacom ;o) Thanks, I'm glad that you like my stuff! Thanks indeed! I appreciate that very much.

    Nearchos! CHEERS!!!
