Here is a fast painting for the tiled floor from the previous tutorial. It looked something like this:
The painting is not meant to be realistic, and I didn’t use any weathering technique (sadly) and neither airbrush or oils. Just acrylics, a bit of sponge and a brush.
Let’s start with the black primed piece:
The first step is to put the basic layer of color. It is a mixture of light blue, ocra and black with random ratios (around 2:2:1), applied with the sponge in order to make an irregular background. After the painting some cracks and holes were covered in paint, so I used some diluted black paint to fill the holes and make them dark again.
Then a second passage, with a ocra-light blue and then with a tip of white.
For the sand (actually, really fine rubble) i used some dark grey, meant to be drybrushed with light gray and then white.
Now an ocra spongebrush for the tiles, and a wash for darkening everything!
Some aimed drybrush on the corners, some orange around to give a bit more colour.. and TA-DAA!
Nothing excepional, just a way to give a sense to the piece! 🙂
