Oil painting of Jimi Hendrix using underpainting technique by Diarmuid Kelly

       Oil painting of Jimi Hendrix - simple steps. 

       Step 1: roughly blocking in the composition using burnt umber
       and white over soft salmon base ( primed canvas). 

       Step 2. A little further along-  almost ready for color.

     Step 3: adding color to background

      Step 4: adding color to main figure, focusing on 
      lights, darks and contrast.

     Step 5: highlights and final glazes, done!
     Size: 30" x 40"
     Title: Purple Haze
     This piece is 1 of 12 from my Icons of Rock Series - Guitarists.
