Gala Gerenuk by TomasProchazka Gala Gerenuk by TomasProchazka
Returning to a more colorful palette, and to Alla-Prima techniques, so I painted all in one session. A character I created inspired on the Birds of paradise, from New Guinea, as a reference for the face I made a composite in PS with four different photos. Really happy with te result :).

Oil on canvas
48x38cm

Instant fav! Awesome piece of art! But feels a little flat (2D) and I dont know why. Thank you for sharing.

Oh Thanks. I know why! When making a composite out of four differently lit googled pictures, their lighting combined and evened out. There is also the fact that I exaggerated the lightness of the orange under the eyebrows. Thanks for the feedback

Alla prima, Italian for first attempt, is a technique in oil painting where colors are placed upon over other colors while the entirety of the painting is still wet.  The technique is thus alternatively called wet-on-wet.  (Or premier coup--at first stroke--by the French.)

I just learned this.
