I documented many of the steps for my contribution (“Herman Blume,” 8x10 inches, mixed media) to Spoke Art Gallery's “Bad Dads IV” Wes Anderson Tribute show. This is a technique made famous by the incredible CF Payne. You can see a video of his process here.


List of supplies:


• Prismacolor Colored Pencils (CF Payne does a lot with just a burnt sienna, but find something that works for you)
• Acrylic paint 
• Acrylic Matte medium to seal the board or apply acrylic glazes as needed
• Acrylic and watercolor brushes (personal preference)
• Watercolors (Winsor & Newton Professional grade)
• Oil paint (dioxazine violet & permanent green light - though the colors can be changed as appropriate for the piece, these mix to a gray or neutral violet shadow color)
• Gamsol odorless mineral spirits to mix with the oil paint for a nice fluid oil wash
• Glass jar with lid to store mineral spirits
• Glass palette on which to mix paint
• Wide brush to apply oil wash (can even be a cheap chip brush from a hardware store)
• Suede-matte® retouch to seal oil wash and prepare the surface for colored pencils

* It’s important to work in an area that is well ventilated during the oil wash and lacquer spray stages. The fumes can be dangerous to your health.
