Step 1: Sketch out the general outline of the objects in your scene. In this case I’ve chosen a cat. Your sketch does not have to be perfect! Just create general shapes.
Step 2: Lay down the base colors for your painting. You want light colors first then build up darker colors. Keep in mind you are not doing detail here! You are just laying down a foundation for you to build on.
Step 3: Add detail to finish!
As easy as 1, 2, 5!
