The Power of Shading

Posted on

This time last year (March 31st to be exact) I did an oil painting of Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse, as pictured below.

Today I decided to give to give the painting more depth so I added some shading;

I think it gives the painting a much richer look to it and am very happy with the results (I’m also very happy I didn’t ruin my painting!)

So I have put the pictures side by side just to further emphasis the power of shading, and what a difference it really does make to a drawing/painting etc.
