The name's Alyssa Davis and I'm working on a new painting! This video covers the first stage of my technique. After getting a decent sketch I begin by laying in tones with gray. There are many ways to draw the viewer's attention to the desired area, but I tend to favor creating extreme contrast in those areas. I'm always looking to create the best composition, so I tend to use the lasso and transform tools quite a lot.

I am using Adobe Photoshop CS5 and an Intuos3 Wacom Tablet. Overall time for this portion of the painting is about an hour and ten minutes, sped up 600%.
