Creating "My Lazarus Story"

I was asked to share my process for my last painting called "My Lazarus Story."



This is by no means a tutorial. It's just a story process. But all the steps are there, I think.



Here ya go:


Canvas: 3'x3' gallery wrap. (1.5"deep)

Medium: Acrylics, string gel, old sketch pad paper, vintage button, iridescent powders


•I sketched the bodice lightly with Unbleached White just to be sure of placement.



•I filled in the background and honestly, I'm not sure what colors I used because I was using up the paint on my palette. But it for sure included: Cad Yellow Med, Cad Yellow Light, Alizarin Crimson or Quinacridone Magenta, Yellow Ocre, Titanium White, Cad Red Med, Ultra Marine Blue, Phthalo Blue, Burnt Sienna and maybe (Veridian Green?)
