30 Easy Steps by joereimer 30 Easy Steps by joereimer
These are the steps for South For The Winter. I don't actually think they are easy to follow steps... the title is kind of a joke. I was a little hesitant to put this as a tutorial, but I guess perhaps someone could learn something from it. I just thought it would be interesting to show the process I use to paint. I definitely don't think this is the best way to paint, but hey, it works for me! ;)

Did you use any retarding medium or thickening gel to get the wet-on-wet and impasto effects or did you just go like a whippet with an arseful of dynamite?

I just use an acrylic matte gel to thicken up the paints. With some of my other paintings I paint the gel by itself on certain areas that I want to have a lot of texture, let it dry, and then paint over.

I like process you used for this. And i think i understand how you did it.Thank you for this, hopefully i could use it to my advantage ( maybe i learned something) How long did you wait between layers ?

Thanks... glad you've found it informative. The layers were done right after each other... basically the time it took to take the pictures was it.
