Peek inside my kitchen: Phase 2 to 11
So here's another bit of how I work: After the sketch phase I make fills that rouchly get the color they're supposed to end up with. This leads me to figure out where the different segments of the bird are: head, crown, wings. I use them as guides to paint the bird with its final feathers. The bird starts with 7 outlines, and in the phase on the right, he has over 3000 pencil strokes. Mind you, he is not ready. Sometimes I don't like an area and paint all over it again. I never delete anything. It is like a canvas that just gets painted again. No need to delete. The feather underneath another feather plays an important role too!
