Here's another practice figure for the painting with Reaper clear paints at Reapercon just a matter of weeks from now.
The concept here is to begin with a very muted value 'sketch', just to lay out where the general light and dark patterns should be.
Using the clear blue, green and purple clear paints, a series of glazes provides the actual colors that you see here. The clear paints are very saturated, so even when thinned with water, they maintain their structure and consistency.
Once the generic color values have been achieved, I can start mixing in lighter opaque colors with the clears and get more gradations.
