Who needs Google when you have a MacGyver?
I'm totally obsessed with the MacGyver reboot on CBS, so I had to paint Lucas Till! I've never done a time-lapse painting this large before so it was a bit of a learning process with the camera, angles, and all that, especially toward the end. I had a super hard time with not standing directly in front of what I was painting so I could see properly, so some of the parts it's kinda hard to see what I was doing. Sorry!
I started this painting out with an acrylic underpainting in full color then went over it in oil paint. I had some troubles with the far right side of Lucas' face and ended up painting and repainting and painting and repainting it until I got it right. Each time I repainted it I covered the area with gesso, let it dry, then sanded the area so it was smooth & I could redraw the image over it. Eventually I got it to a point where I was happy with it, but it took many tries!
I normally use Liquin religiously as a medium when I'm painting with oils, but I didn't use any medium this time. I wanted this painting to be a bit more vibrant and expressive with the style, so I painted very thick and did multiple layers on each section.
Some of the oil paint brands I used include Grumbacher, Windsor & Newton (also Windsor & Newton Winton), Lukas, Gamblin, Old Holland Classic, & Rembrandt.
This painting was done on a 24x30 gallery-wrapped canvas!
