Acrylic on Canvas. 18x24.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

any suggestion for tutorials on acrylic painting, do you happen to have some? im just getting started this is hugely inspirational

JossBoss responds:

I don't have any tutorials, however I can tell you that I used an underpainting for this one. Basically choose a neutral color and paint all your shadows that color, water it down and paint all your midtones that color and then leave highlights white. Having this base painting and breaking things down into shapes will help get you started. I always find i get lost in small details a the beginning but with underpaintings you have to focus on the bigger picture :) Hopefully that helps! Best of luck.

Awesome work, you have painted the colours in perfectly.

Wow, great job. It is not easy to draw a soda can in such a form and be able to do the shading and light so well.

Very nice all around! Did you know the original Coca Cola bottle was designed to recognizable, even after it was broken? Talk about branding a product! I especially like how the subject and background are as equally detailed and shaded. BTW, is Raspberry Creme Shasta better than the other Shastas?

Sadly, I still remember when Coke sold their own vanilla extract (glass pump bottle) for use in restaurants and diners, just epic, but costly since they used real sugar and real vanilla. Then they used cheap corn syrup, then cheaper vanilla, then stopped altogether.
