Princess Diana portrait techniques used to create the work


Ham Radio operator and Artist John G4YDM-captures Diana.  Techniques in oil painting are varied from artist to artist many sketches the shape directly, the outline of the painting or portrait onto prepared canvas, the process is to section off your painting and fill in base color in blocks building up the painting as you go along, the next part of the process in to start a color, this like all techniques takes time and practice until you build up your skill through checking your reference photograph, pictures help greatly when you first start out.



I have developed my own Portraits in oil techniques, first I make a copy of my reference photograph onto this perspex sheet which I use to project the image onto canvas my technique which is by no means unique helps perspective and distances such as eyes to mouth, etc which are important points when you begin to paint.
