Crocodile Painting – new on my easel

Hi everyone,

I thought I would post the painting I have just put up on my easel. It’s a Nile Crocodile, so something very different for me.

It’s also quite large 36in x 20in, oil on canvas.

The 1st stage shows the drawing sealed with a thin acrylic wash.

The 2nd photo shows the 2nd layer of acrylic paint (Burnt Sienna) just to add some darks.

Next I’ll start with the oil paints

    Hi Jason, cool, looks like its gonna be another fantastic painting. I finished my first tiger and though not as detailed as yours i am pretty pleased with it, thanks for all your tips, they really helped

  2. Hi Jason, Just popped in to see what you’re up to, and yes this is going to be big isn’t it. Suits the subject though I’d say.. It’ll be very dramatic.
