Old West – Work In Progress

by Cliff Cramp

Western Painting - Work In ProgressI began this illustration as a digital ink sketch using a wide range of values. As usuual, I start with simple shapes and build them into more complex shapes. The goal here is to set the composition and develop a nice range of values. I’m working general to specific throughout the entire process. I like to build the painting up in unison rather than concentratingon one part at a time. I also played with light side vs dark side at this early stage.

Values get lighter and cooler as they move back in space. It’s at this point that I begin to develop the warm side and the cool side. Then detail and text.
