Creation Step by Step

1 – Background Preparation: John starts by painting the canvas background in shades of gray, laying the foundation of the work.

2 – Stencil Placement and Contour Application: He then places the stencil on the canvas and uses gray spray paint to draw the outlines.

Tip: To achieve clean edges with your stencil, place weights (like washers) on it to prevent the paint from seeping underneath. John also uses a paintbrush to keep the stencil in place or magnets if you’re working on a vertical canvas.

3 – Defining Shadows: At this stage, John dedicates himself to painting the medium shadow areas of the face using dark gray. The stencil, designed with fine guide lines, helps clearly distinguish the areas intended to receive different color intensities. Unlike the darkest areas represented by the empty parts of the stencil, these medium areas are actively filled by John to build the face’s volume.

4 – Panther Details: He then paints the panther in a slightly darker gray than that used for the face.
