Took on foreshortening and portrait (EEEK!)
and lions and tigers
and bears, oh my!
I’m pretty happy
with the turnout!
The suggestion of
Marley’s and Hendrix’s portraits was done
with masking fluid over yellow, then splashy splashy! I’m pretty
happy with them —
they were the “scary”
part — how much
detail to show?
Image of Rich German right; I don’t know who exactly took the image.
I am taking an online class called Delicious Paint by my favorite Aussie,
Tracey Fletcher King. What I am learning about deepening brilliant glowing colors helped me with deep and brilliant blues and yellows and reds….
I used Daniel Smith Masking Fluid, White Pitt pen, salt, and any other trick to create the illusion of water — but mostly wet and puddling!
Primatek Lapis under-painting helped with moody water.
Aquabee Super Deluxe Journal with a Pentalic 2B woodless pencil,
Platinum Preppie pen with De Atramentis Document Red and Noodler’s Scabiosa ink,
and Daniel Smith, Holbein, and QoR watercolors.
I can’t thank Rich enough for allowing me to use his images.
You can, by visiting his page and joining his cause.
(BTW, follow him on FB and see great videos!)
Rich also sells his photographs and paintings,
with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the ocean.
