To start a painting....first you have to
sketch, sketch sketch!!!
figure out your composition; when painting people, figure out the position of body/face.
Then when your happy, make a rough sketch on the canvas.
Apply your wash/block in the major areas with base color.
Work in the major lines/shadows and highlights.
After that it's just layering your paint to achieve the shapes/colors/shadows/hightlights/lines.
